The Italian novelist Edoardo Albinati has won the Strega Prize, Italy’s highest literary award, for his novel, The Catholic School. The work is based on the true story of a group of young students who, in 1975, committed a series of brutal crimes. The perpetrators were former pupils at a prestigious Catholic school, which Albinati was attending when the crimes occurred. This novel examines, from the point of view of someone close to the context, the palpable results in society of an education based on restrictions and pieties. He will talk to Héctor Abad Faciolince.
