This is Nicola Lagioia’s comment on the closing of the event: “Final evening in Positano Tell, with a Flavio Gioia square full of people from 6pm to 11pm, with three of the five finalists, Emanuele Trevi, Teresa Ciabatti and Giulia Caminiti at the Strega Prize in dialogue with a very passionate public, and with the director of the Bellonci Foundation, Stefano Petrocchi, who also came to follow the event. Giuseppe Catozzella and Donatella Di Pietrantonio, moderated by Pierluigi Razzano, told Italy through the present and the past, and two very intense stories of sisterhood. Teresa Ciabatti and Lorenza Pieri described the Tuscan province and Orbetello as literary places and scenarios from which to look at the recent history of our country. Emanuele Trevi spoke about his “friendship trilogy”, three books with which, in recent years, he has reconstructed the literary (and in a certain sense, as far as he is concerned, sentimental) history of our country. Concita De Gregorio told how perhaps the period we have gone through in the last year and a half has changed us, and how it has changed children and adults differently. Giulia Caminito talked about marginality, female voices, mother-daughter relationships investigated through the novel ».
