Antonio Monda (NYU) announces the theme of the 2019 edition of Le Conversazioni.

Followed by a screening of the documentary Happiness directed by Francesco Zippel about the previous edition (2018) with Ian Buruma, Dave Eggers, David Mamet, Helen Oyeyemi, Benjamin Taylor, and Vendela Vida.

Le Conversazioni is the international festival created by Antonio Monda and Davide Azzolini that takes place annually on the Isle of Capri, in New York (at the Morgan Library and at the New York Historical Society), and in Rome, with the participation of some of the leading lights in contemporary English literature and international culture. In the last few years some of today’s great writers have come together in Capri to discuss the chosen theme for each year: identity, the relationship between the word and the image, memory, deadly sins, human rights, eros, winners & losers, revolution, diversity, lies, happiness.
