Thursday 28 April at 6.30 pm Emanuela E. Abbadessa will come to tell us about her novel Fiammetta (Rizzoli) accompanied by Raffaella Silvestri.
Late nineteenth century. Fiammetta has been waiting for that meeting for a long time. She walked around Florence with a curious excitement on her, at the idea of meeting Mario Valastro, the Sicilian poet whom she reads every day in the solitude of her teacher’s rooms. When he finally has it in front of him, he brings out all his character: he stands up to him and knows how to be seductive with intelligence. And he feels attracted to this petite and cheeky woman, whose sensuality is hidden like the vermilion lock in her hair. Back in Catania, the poet no longer recognizes himself. He waits for Fiammetta’s letters and does not care about his mother and aunt, the fearsome Strazzeri sisters. Possible that he, who did not want a wifeto find out, is he in love? Fiammetta is also amazed: for her a woman must be free to build her own destiny and she would never have imagined putting it in the hands of a man. But he sees revolt and understanding in him, what else can love be? But after an idyllic honeymoon, everything goes downhill at home. Fiammetta has to deal with herself and with a temptation that is difficult to resist. With her debut, Capo Scirocco, Emanuela E. Abbadessa showed us how today we can write a romance with the strength of a modern classic. Confirming himself as one of the most interesting voices of recent years, with Fiammetta he gives us a story of vital outbursts and illusions, in which love has the frightening force of a wrong passion.
