The Many Lives of Inspector Montalbano

Start: Dec 3, 2014 6:00:00 PM
End: Dec 3, 2014 8:00:00 PM

No Italian detective figure has been so popular, both at home and beyond the national borders, as Inspector Montalbano, the widely-acclaimed literary creation of Sicilian crime writer Andrea Camilleri. Camilleri has sold millions of copies of his Montalbano novels in Italy and abroad; they have been translated in more than 30 languages, and the rights of the TV adaptations have been acquired by networks all around the world. This talk, while contextualizing the Sicilian author’s controversial success, aims to explore the reasons behind the ‘Montalbano phenomenon’, to examine its intriguing incarnations but, especially, to discuss the (problematic) cultural ramifications of its reception/perception in Italy and abroad.
