The strength of passions and loyalty to oneself and his or her aspirations.

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 third meeting, Marco Missiroli, winner of the 2019 Young Strega Prize and Strega Prize finalist with his book Fedeltà (Einaudi) and the actor Vinicio Marchioni talk about the strength of passions and how being loyal to ourselves and our aspirations could lead us to be unfaithful to the expectations of others.
