With the participation of Alessandra Ginzburg.
Natalia Ginzburg (1916-1991) was the author of numerous novels, short stories, and essays. In her work, she was particularly interested in the intersection between private and public, between family relationships and the political sphere. A Family Lexicon, arguably one of the great works of twentieth-century literature, re-creates the small world of a family – and their linguistic codes – against a backdrop of the rise of Mussolini through World War II.
