Tiziano Scarpa

18/10/2018

Beware: falling words

Writing has never been so important as today. At work, in society, in personal relationships: with others and with yourself. With this workshop you will experiment some of the short and very short ways of past and present expression: haiku, slogan, greguería, spot, epigram, status, aphorism, post, tale, announcement…

Tiziano Scarpa was born in Venice, Italy in 1963. He is a novelist, poet, and playwright.   Scarpa’s third novel, “Stabat Mater” (Serpent’s Tail, 2011) was awarded the Strega Prize, Italy’s most prestigious literary honor. His acclaimed “Venice is a Fish”: a Sensual Guide (Gotham Books, 2008) is known throughout the world as an idiosyncratic celebration of Venice. His most recent novels are “Il Cipiglio del Gufo” and “Il brevetto del geco”. Among his books to be mentioned, “Corpo” (Einaudi, 2005), a collection of aphorisms and short stories about fifty parts of the human body. His books have been translated into many languages including Japanese, Chinese, Russian, Hebrew, and Arabic. He also has an intense activity as a scenic reader of his and others’ works, at the theater and not only.
