Focusing on the works by Leone (1909-1944) and Natalia Ginzburg (1916-1991) the
Summer School is dedicated to a reflection on the authors’ contribution to the 20th
century Italian and European history. Besides a critical analysis of their creative and
intellectual activity and their civic engagement, the participants will have the opportunity
to debate the role both Leone and Natalia had in the publishing house Einaudi,
and to experiment new methods of teaching literature.
The program includes 3 plenary lessons and 5 seminars. The participants will take
part in broad and inspiring discussions with prominent scholars who have given
substantial contributions for the themes addressed, among which Carlo Ginzburg —
one of the greatest historians of the last century and son of Leone and Natalia —
and Domenico Scarpa — editor and critic of Natalia’s works by Einaudi. Moreover,
the participants will work on personal projects under the supervision of a scholar,
which will be presented and discussed during dedicated plenary sessions.
