Nicola Lagioia


I am a writer. I run the Turin International Book Fair. And I am one of the presenters of Pagina 3, the cultural news programme on Radio Rai 3. I have been a selector and jury member at the Venice Film Festival. With Ferocity (Einaudi 2014), I won the Strega Prize. My most recent book is The City of the Living (Einaudi 2020). I write for various daily newspapers. My books are translated in 20 countries.


Reading and building identity

Books, the masters of inner freedom: they open the cage of our ego and guide us in the ability to listen to others, understand ourselves, and be part of everything.
