"Borgo Sud" Finalist at the 2021 Strega Prize - Adriana is like a wind, she always bursts into her sister's life with the force of a revelation. They were rebellious and accomplices as children, daughters of no mother. Now they are women full of impulses and mistakes, disappointments and possibilities, with a legacy of unspoken words and intermittent attention. They live two great loves, sacred and a little twisted, irreparable as are sometimes the loves met by young people. But for those who do not know the language of affection it is very difficult to open the heart. With the wisdom and naturalness of the great writers, Donatella Di Pietrantonio gives us in these pages a warm and whispered emotion, which will remain with us for a long time.

Donatella Di Pietrantonio writer, born in Arsita, in the province of Teramo. She still is very attached to her homeland, of which she often spoke in the course of her works.

Claudia Polledri - is a postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Art History and Film Studies at the University of Montreal. For ten years she collaborated with the Italian Cultural Institute where she teaches Italian language and culture.
