Humanities in the Village: Letting Southern Italy Speak for Itself with Audrey Fastuca

The Ivy Bookshop and Bird in Hand present the latest installment of Humanities in the Village featuring Audrey Fastuca.

With the popularity of the Elena Ferrante Neapolitan novels, Southern Italy, as of late has been thrust into the literary forefront. However, Southern Italy has not always "spoken for itself," and has often been the object of travel literature, romanticizing its verdant hills and fertile volcano. Naples and Southern Italy are often considered Europe's "other," sensual playground for vacationers and defined both by la dolce vita and the mafia.

Fastuca's presentation will chart the history of literary and filmic representation of Southern Italy, from the Grand Tour to Elena Ferrante, unpacking stereotypes and North/South prejudices along the way.
