  • Vivere un amore a New York. Un amore clandestino, come ce ne sono tanti. Un amore che dura sette anni, due mesi e nove giorni in una città descritta nella sua fisicità, nella sua carnalità, nella sua sensualità, ma anche nella solitudine di chi vi abita. Antonio Monda nel suo ultimo romanzo, "L'evidenza delle cose non viste", aggiunge un nuovo efficace tassello, il quinto, alla decalogia newyorkese iniziata con "L’America non esiste" nel 2012.

    The fourth of Antonio Monda’s ten-volume New York saga has just been published in Italy. Based on a recurring cast of characters, each volume is set in a different decade of the 20th century. This last is set in the 1970s and it examines the complicated relationship between faith and guilt.
  • Me and You, Io e Te, is a film from 2012 by Bernardo Bertolucci, his last one for now. The film, based in the novel by the same title by Niccolò Ammaniti, was screened at Casa Italiana Zerilli Marimò as part of The New Literature from Europe Festival “an annual celebration of writing from across the European continent, featuring readings and discussions between leading and emerging literary voices from Europe.” Among this year’s representative there was Roman writer Niccolò Ammaniti.
  • Antonio Monda, writer, essayist, director, and professor in the Department of Film and Television at the Tisch School of the Arts at New York University, is one of the most famous faces of the Italian cultural scene in New York City. He has just published the third book of a “ten-volume novel.” In the following interview, he and Stefano Albertini, director of NYU’s Casa Italiana Zerilli- Marimò, discuss this book, entitled Ota Benga, set in Monda’s beloved New York at the turn of the twentieth century. Through the true story of Ota Benga, a Congolese pygmy kidnapped and brought to the United States to be exhibited in a zoo in 1904, the novel merges fiction with history and touches upon issues such as the practice of “pseudo-science” and racism in the era of modernization.
  • New York's favorite Casa Italiana Zerilli-Marimò closed the season of cultural events with a successful round table with the directors and actors of Open Roads: New Italian Cinema at Lincoln center. With the guidance of Stefano Albertini and Antonio Monda, Italian actors and directors discussed their films and what seems to be a great moment for Italian cinema.
  • It has now been ten years since Antonio Monda and Davide Azzolini held the first edition of their literary festival “Le Conversazioni”, on the beautiful island of Capri. Since then the event has grown and now takes place in four different cities spanning over 3 continents. The festival takes the form of casual yet sophisticated discussions between notorious intellectual figures. We met with the organizers during their annual New York preview at NYU’s Casa Italiana Zerilli-Merimò and talked about the event’s inception and about what’s to be expected from the season’s NYC events at the Morgan Library, at the NY Historical Society, and at the Guggenheim.
