Giuseppe Dessí tra traduzioni e edizioni

Una raccolta di saggi
  • Edited by:
  • Anna Dolfi,

With the 100th anniversary of Giuseppe Dessí’s birth approaching, in 2009, the Committee in charge of the celebrations launched in a widespread dissemination activity of the writer's work in many European countries. And since the translations (the main objective of the project) required a complex knowledge of the author, his style, the dialogue and the difference with the reference culture, it was suggested to study and promote them not only through the reconstruction of the history and typicality of the author’s narrative path, but also through the reconstruction of his scarce reception abroad within the framework, in the case of Dessí, of the presence, outside national borders, of Italian literature in the second half of the 20th century. Through the examination of books, editorial catalogues, magazines, anthologies, and thanks to the commitment of scholars and young collaborators of Italian and foreign universities, it is now France, England, Spain, Germany, the Netherlands, Poland, Hungary, Ukraine, Finland, Sweden and many more at the centre of the attention, with their reading preferences and aversions, together with Italy, and with the themes, stories, characters of the writer to whom this book is dedicated.

Anna Dolfi teaches Modern and Contemporary Italian Literature at the Faculty of Letters and Philosophy of the University of Florence. Her most famous works include studies on Giacomo Leopardi, research on fiction and poetry between the late 19th century and the Third generation, books on the "forms of subjectivity" and on melancholy. She is the greatest scholar on Giuseppe Dessí's work, with her text “La parola e il tempo. Giuseppe Dessí e l’ontogenesi di un ‘roman philosophique’” (re-printed in 2004 in Rome for Bulzoni) and the proceedings of a convention she organized in Florence, named “Una giornata per Giuseppe Dessí” (Rome, Bulzoni, 2005) being the most relevant pieces of her work. She also edited Dessí’s posthumous novel, “La scelta” (Milan, Mondadori, 1978) and his texts about Sardinia (“Un pezzo di luna. Note, memoria e immagini della Sardegna”, Cagliari, Della Torre, 1987 and 2006), as well as the reprint of some of his novels for Mondadori’s series “Oscar”, for the Italian publisher Ilisso, and for some French and Swedish publishers. As president of the Italian National Committee in charge of the celebrations for the 100th Anniversary of Dessí’s birth, she and a large group of students continued and improved the studies on the author, the inventorying of the Fund and the recovery and printing of some unpublished and rare materials.
