Giovanna Giordano in conversation with Juan Esteban Constaín

Cartagena 2023, 

At this event, the Italian writer Giovanna Giordano will present a novel recently published in Spanish: Un vuelo mágico. Inspired by the true story of her grandfather, this is a beautiful fable with hints of fantasy about it, in which Giulio Giamò, a young Italian pilot, is sent to Abyssinia to give to King Haile Selassie a declaration of war signed by Mussolini. During the journey, Giamò will encounter a challenging new view of the world. This enchanting and dreamlike story is an expression of the writer’s view that “if a man picks up a book, he puts down a gun”. In conversation with Juan Esteban Constaín.

Simultaneous interpreting from Italian to Spanish available
