On Friday 21 January, at 6 pm, the writer Giovanna Giordano, nominated for the 2020 Nobel Prize for literature, will be at the Feltrinelli in Palermo to present her latest book with the journalist Elvira Terranova: “The perfume of freedom”. It took years – her latest book, ‘The Mystery of Lithian’, is from 2004, to have in her hands a new novel by Giovanna Giordano, a unique author on the Italian literary scene. “The Scent of Freedom” marks his return to storytelling, and will be translated into Hebrew, Greek, English, Dutch, Spanish, Catalan and Portuguese. Mondadori will present all of his works again. With the story of the gentle hero Antonio Grillo and his journey from Gesso, in front of the Aeolian Islands, to America, Giovanna Giordano takes up themes dear to her and transports us to her fabulous world. The family memories and the scents of Sicily come to life through his vivid imagination, becoming characters, places and fairytale worlds, with ever new and unexpected shapes. Thus, entering this world of wonders, we find ourselves thinking lightly and almost without realizing it, on very serious themes: freedom, youth, diversity, the search for the meaning of our being in the world. which every reader will find a detail, a sentence, an image that he will hear written especially for him “.
