This our first experiment will be an accurate chat, pontual e descontraído sobre a história sociocultural italiana do período do autor que escolhi. Decidi começar com um verdadeiro gigante da literatura italiana: Pirandello, o primeiro a escrever de maneira irônica e divertida sobre a ‘tragédia’ do homem moderno. O olhar deste autor é extremamente atento ao ser humano, to the agony of loneliness, the humiliation inflicted by life and others. And this lucid and realistic perception feeds his paradoxical and hilarious stories”, diz Nicola Siri. “In our classes I’ll read the ‘novels’ that Pirandello wrote all his life. Are tragedies that become comedies or are comedies that become tragedies? É isto que vamos ouvir, discover and savor on this journey of 2 months”, complementa Nicola.

Five novels by the Sicilian author will be covered in these meetings: Ciaula discovers the moon, The Patent, the Wheelbarrow, Think about it, Giacomino! and The tragedy of a character. Each of the 10 classes lasts for 50 minutes. Para inscrição e matrícula: centro.iicrio@esteri.it or WhatsApp: (21) 3534-4344

Even in the epidemiological emergency that Brazil and much of the planet are experiencing in these weeks, the Italian Institute of Culture in Rio de Janeiro is actively pursuing its mission of promoting and spreading the Italian language and culture. Thanks to the resources of the internet we are experiencing a new way of making culture, estamos reinventando a forma de nos relacionarmos ao nosso público através da cultura. A cultura não para, neither does IIC Rio ”, says the director of the Livia Raponi Institute.

In this very difficult and obscure period of the pandemic, one thing proved to be evident and necessary. People can live without football, without bars, without shopping, without a lot of things, mas é absolutamente impossível viver sem arte. A arte une, welcomes, does reflect, oferece refúgio e alivia a mente. Nesta perspectiva, the Italian Institute of Culture offers the public one more of its rich cultural achievements so that the public can participate inside their homes.
