Elena Ferrante’s Key Words: Time and Identity in the Neapolitan Quartet- Webinar

In the Neapolitan Quartet, Elena Ferrante sketches a genealogical cycle that extends from the 1950s to the first decade of the new millennium and challenges notions of nationhood, progress, revolution, and even feminism.

This conversation between Laura Benedetti (Georgetown University) and Tiziana de Rogatis (Università per Stranieri di Siena) tackles some crucial themes in Elena Ferrante’s tetralogy—such as language, time, and friendship—while exploring their adaptation to the screen in the HBO critically acclaimed series directed by Saverio Costanzo.

This program is organized by the Embassy of Italy in Washington, DC and the Italian Cultural Institute in collaboration with the Department of Italian at Georgetown University. September 1st marked the United States launch of Ferrante’s much anticipated new book The Lying Life of Adults, published by Europa Editions.
