Dacia Maraini is one of Italy’s most prominent contemporary authors. She won, among others, Campiello (1990) and Strega (1999), which are the most prestigious Italian literature awards. Her books have been translated in twenty-two languages, and some of her bestsellers, such as Storia di Piera [Piera’s Story], L’età del malessere [The Age of Malaise], La lunga vita di Marianna Ucrìa [The Silent Duchess], Voci [Voices], and Memorie di una ladra [Memories of a Thief], were turned into successful movies. Among her most recent novels are La bambina e il sognatore (2015) and Tre donne (2017).
