Amara Lakhous

Translations/Transpositions - Migration and non-mother-tongue writing

Amara Lakhous in conversation with Federica Mazzara, discussing his 2006 book

Scontro di civiltà per un ascensore a piazza vittorio
(Clash of Civilizations Over an Elevator in Piazza Vittorio)

NB this event will be conducted in Italian without translation.

In the book, a small culturally mixed community living in an apartment building in the center of Rome is thrown into disarray when one of the neighbors is murdered. An investigation ensues, and as each of the victim's neighbors is questioned, the reader is introduced to, perhaps, the most colorful neighborhood in the city. Each character takes his turn recounting his story—the dramas of emigration, the fears and misunderstandings of a life spent on society's margins, the mainstream culture's indifference.
