Simonetta Agnello Hornby is an Italian novelist and English lawyer, and has spent most of her life in the UK. Starting from personal experience, Agnello Hornby will reflect on developments in Italian society and law with a special focus on women. She will then discuss the readership of Italian literature, with a special reference to female authorship and the publishing world, which seems to select primarily male authors in translation. Counter-examples to this trend are represented by figures such as Elvira Sellerio, the publisher of Andrea Camilleri’s Montalbano, whose influential work will be highlighted during the talk.

Join us in welcoming Simonetta Agnello Hornby to deliver the Lucrezia Zaina Bequest Lecture. This lecture was postponed due to unforeseen circumstances and we are now delighted to be able to restage the event, connecting with our audience online.
