Richard Nasti Lecture Series: Luca Zanchi and Viviana Meschesi to Present: 'Narrative Responsibilities: From the Years of Lead to Restorative Justice' April 24


The Center for Italian Studies at Stony Brook University welcomes Luca Zanchi, Fulbright Grantee, Cultural Studies, Stony Brook University and  Viviana Meschesi, PhD, Roma Tre University to campus on Monday, April 24, 2017.

The screening of Marco Bellocchio's film Buongiorno, Notte (2003) will be followed by a discussion of Bellocchio's representation of the kidnapping and slaughter of Aldo Moro by the Red Brigades highlighting its structural analogies with post-traumatic marration. Excerpts from a yet to be published interview with Renato Curcio will be presented by Luca Zanchi.

Finally, the formation of a Restorative-Justice Group joined by other ex-Brigadists and the relatives of their victims will be addressed by Viviana Meschesi as a dialogical effort to converge towards more complete and responsible narratives.

All are invited to this free event, which will be held at 2:30 pm in the Melville Library, Room E4340, Center for Italian Studies Meeting Hall.

For more information, please contact Center for Italian Studies Executive Director Jo Fusco at (631) 632-7444.
