Representing Italy on the occasion of the 2016 EUROLIS conference Marino Sinibaldi, Director General of Rai 3, will give a talk on "Books and Freedom"

The censorship of books in Italy has had a long and chequered history for a variety of different reasons and has involved numerous important and celebrated Italian personages over the centuries. Not even the advent and birth of democracy, which has clearly liberated and freed up of all forms of the circulation of ideas, has been entirely successful in bringing this about: -the low numbers of readers in Italy (not more than 41% of the population) is proof enough of this. However, will new technologies succeed in achieving this where up until now, the Italian educational system, media and the publishing industry have all, at least partially, failed?

Marino Sinibaldi, was born in Rome in 1954. He is a prolific author and since the 1980s has been a writer and presenter of important and celebrated radio and television programmes for RAI (the major Italian National Broadcasting Network and the Italian equivalent of the BBC). He has experienced, witnessed personally, related and broadcast some of the most important cultural events in Italy over the last thirty years. In 2009 he was appointed Director General of RAI 3, the most important cultural channel of the National Italian Television Network.

He has published numerous essays on literary criticism with some of Italy’s foremost publishers Einaudi, Bompiani, Baldini & Castoldi, and on the history of culture and mass communications with Feltrinelli, Zanichelli and for the prestigious Enciclopedia Treccani.

In 1997, he published with Donzelli, Pulp. La letteratura nell’era della simultaneità (Pulp. Literature in the era of simultaneity)
