LORENZA GHINELLI - BALLAD FOR NINA. NINA''S VISIONS (Marsilio/Universale Economica Feltrinelli, 2023).

Saturday 18 November at 6pm

Lorenza Ghinelli will present

Ballad for Nina. Nina's Visions, vol. 3 (Marsilio/Universale Economica Feltrinelli, 2023).

For the first time, Nina finds herself confronted with an evil that fully corresponds to the nature of those who act, an evil that does not seek understanding or absolution.

In the background, a city in disarray in which lost individuals move, overwhelmed by the imposed confinements and climate change, crushed by a hyper-reality that annihilates any imaginative capacity.


Ballad for Nina is also and above all a story of bonds that resist like ropes stretched over the abyss, and which the protagonist will break only to be able to climb back up on her own, full of awareness that cannot be exchanged for any reassurance.

The love that resists even the tear is the only one that matters to her, and she will be able to tell her who she has really become.
