This interview with Edoardo Albinati took place shortly after his La scuola cattolica (2016) was awarded the Strega Prize. The discussion focuses on the structure of this work, in which the author reinterprets the historical events of the Seventies in light of the Circeo Murder (a brutal incident involving a murder and the rape of two young women in Rome in 1975). In particular, the author offers some detailed and at times provocative views on how his work corresponds to forms of the novel, the nature of autofiction, and his attitudes to the functions of literature for the individual and society.

Abstract

This interview with Edoardo Albinati took place shortly after his La scuola cattolica (2016) was awarded the Strega Prize. The discussion focuses on the structure of this work, in which the author reinterprets the historical events of the Seventies in light of the Circeo Murder (a brutal incident involving a murder and the rape of two young women in Rome in 1975). In particular, the author offers some detailed and at times provocative views on how his work corresponds to forms of the novel, the nature of autofiction, and his attitudes to the functions of literature for the individual and society.
