21st Annual Week of Italian Language in the World

Gianrico Carofiglio presents the English edition of his novel Le tre del mattino (Einaudi 2017), during an online tour coordinated by the IIC Los Angeles on the occasion of the 21st Annual Week of Italian Language in the World.

Antonio is on the brink of adulthood, still figuring out who he is and who he wants to be. His father, once a brilliant mathematician, hasn’t figured much in his son’s life since his divorce from Antonio’s mother. But then a diagnosis of epilepsy and hope for a cure take father and son to Marseilles, a city that melds French old-world charm and modern-day bohemia.

The October 19 event is organized by the Italian Cultural Institute Los Angeles with Los Angeles Public Library in collaboration with the Italian Cultural Insitute San Francisco. Moderated by Wendy Horowitz, Los Angeles Public Librarian, Photo Collection.

Streaming live on our Facebook page, on the IIC Los Angeles Facebook page, and on the Los Angeles Public Library's YouTube channel and Facebook page.

Carofiglio will also present the book on October 21 at 1 pm CT in an online event organized by the Consulate Generel of Italy in Houston in collaboration with the Italian Cultural Institute of Los Angeles and moderated by Alessandro Carrera (University of Texas at Houston); on October 23 at 11 am PT in an online meeting introduced by Antonella Dell'Anna (Instructor School of International Letters and Cultures, Arizona State University) and moderated by Olivia Grasso, a student of Italian who is carrying out a research (Honors project) on author, also organized in collaboration with the Italian Cultural Institute of Los Angeles.
