Reading and listening can be a sentimental education in the modern world.

MAXXI and the Maria e Goffredo Bellonci Foundation present a series of meetings with the five finalists of the LXXIII edition of the Strega Prize, the prestigious Italian literary award that for more than seventy years has recounted our country by documenting its language, changes, and traditions.

A new program designed to give space to the best voices of contemporary narrative and start a collective reflection, through dialogue with other expressive languages, on the most urgent current events.

In the fourth meeting, Claudia Durastanti, 2019 Strega Prize finalist with La Straniera (La nave di Teseo), talks with the singer, songwriter and author Nada Malanima starting from their common passion for music, explaining how reading and listening can be a contemporary sentimental education, ideal for creating a map of oneself and of the different worlds experienced.
