This week the life and legacy of the long-forgotten and misunderstood queer feminist writer Goliarda Sapienza is considered in a podcast. Why do her novels speak to us so powerfully today, in Italy and abroad? Alberica Bazzoni, author of Writing for Freedom: Body, Identity and Power in Goliarda Sapienza’s Narrative, takes us through Sapienza’s radically transgressive work, in which life and art refuse to be separated.

The Italian Files are produced by FILL-Festival of Italian Literature in London, with the support of the Istituto Italiano di Cultura in London.
