Manzoni Today. Lessons We Haven’t Learned From History

Stefano Albertini (NYU)
in conversation with
The Betrothed translator Michael Moore

The episode will be broadcast live on Casa’s Facebook Page and website

The conversation will focus on Alessandro Manzoni’s masterpiece I promessi sposi, with a focus on the chapters that deal with the plague that resonate so strongly with the present situation, both in their original context and trying to understand the difficulties in translating this work into English today.
