Special event at the Italian Cultural Institute with Goodbye Dolce Vita: on Friday 28 October the conversation between writers Francesco Pacifico and Adam Thirlwell, chaired by journalists Dario Pappalardo and Stefano Cipolla (La Repubblica).

In his novel Class. Vite infelici di romani mantenuti a New York Francesco Pacifico tells of the fascination for the Big Apple and the Anglo-Saxon world of the young Italians, rich and fanciful. With Lurid & Cute, Adam Thirlwell describes the adventure of a libertine in an anonymous big city of the global world.
