Gianni Celati

Réalisateur/trice, Ecrivain/ne, Scénariste


Gianni Celati est né en Italie, en 1937. Il est un des plus grands écrivains italiens vivants.


Gianni Celati (Italy, 1937), after studying at Cornell University for two years, published four books, for which he won the Bagutta, Grinzane, and Mondello prizes. In the 80s he and photographer Luigi Ghirri devoted themselves to a study of the new Italian landscape, which led to Celati’s best-known book, « Verso la foce ». This in turn inspired his first documentary « Strada provinciale delle anime » (1991), followed by « Il Mondo di Luigi Ghirri » (1999) and « Visioni di case che crollano » (2003). Subsequently he continued to write and translate books, more and more drawn to African cultures, an interest which resulted in his latest film, DIOL KADD (2010).


Uno dei più grandi scrittori italiani viventi.
