Meet the Author: Marco Zuccari at Casa Italiana
Join us at Casa Italiana for an exclusive literary event! Il Punto and Casa Italiana cordially invite you to this event as initiative of the renewal process of our Biblioteca Italiana: a presentation of Marco Zuccari's latest book, "As an Unfaithful Servant", soon to be available in English. The event is open to all and will be conducted in Italian.
You may already be familiar with Marco from our previous encounter during the Italian Conversation group on Dante’s Divine Comedy, organized by Il Punto.
Now, we have the exciting opportunity to meet him in person in Seattle, where he will share insights into his literary journey, with a special focus on his latest masterpiece: "Come un servo infedele."
This historical novel intricately weaves the saga of a family through the tumultuous periods of World War I, the fascist era, World War II, and the post-war era. The narrative unfolds primarily in the picturesque landscapes of Piedmont, with certain characters venturing as far as Albania and Eritrea. Italy's history is vividly painted with both its triumphs and tragedies, where moments of barbarism intersect with acts of heroism. Through the lens of this middle-class family, we are offered a sweeping portrait of Italy, showcasing its flaws and virtues, its conflicts and affections—a compelling tapestry of Italian history mirrored in a family's relentless pursuit of fleeting prosperity.
Location: Casa Italiana 13028 First Ave. S. (Burien WA 98168)
When: October 21, 2023 @10-12pm
