ISLG Annual Lecture 2014

The Italian Studies Library Group Annual Lecture will be held at the British Library on 30th June 2014.

This year's lecture will be:  

Luchino Visconti, Theatre and Opera: a Legacy

by Gaia Servadio

 The British Library, 96 Euston Road, Conference Centre (Brontë Room) 6 pm.

Wine and light refreshments will be served after the lecture

Attendance is free but registration is required. If you plan to come, please email chris.michaelides@bl.uk and type ISLG Lecture in the subject line.

This year’s ISLG lecture will be given by Gaia Servadio, the distinguished writer and broadcaster. Gaia Servadio’s writings are wide ranging: as well as works of fiction she has published many books, on subjects including archaeology, history, politics and social studies, literature, music and the theatre, and she is also well-known as a journalist. Her twenty-eighth book, the autobiographical Raccogliamo le vele (Feltrinelli), was published earlier this year.

Gaia Servadio’s biography of Luchino Visconti is one of her best-known works. Visconti, a famous film director was also an innovative and, at times, controversial theatre and opera director. It is this aspect of his career that this lecture, which will be richly illustrated, will examine.
