Mantua by Erri De Luca (Italian-English)

Standard

Di nuovo a Mantova in settembre, tra cortili e piazze si celebra il capodanno dei libri.
Niente fuochi d’artificio ma incontri al pianoterra delle strade tra chi legge e chi scrive.
Da scrittore ricevo il piu’ bel premio letterario: la stretta di mano di chi ha amato una mia pagina.

Here I am, in Mantua again, where in September is the celebration of book’s New Year’s Eve.
No fireworks but meetings at the grounfloor of the streets between readers and writers.
As a writer I receive the best literary prize: a hand shake by a person who loved a page of mine.

Erri
