Two books on Seamus Heaney have recently been published in Italy: Paolo Febbraro’s essay Leggere Seamus Heaney and Marco Sonzogni’s translation into Italian of Death of a Naturalist.

Both Paolo Febbraro and Marco Sonzogni treasure their encounter with Seamus Heaney as a turning point in their lives. So does poet and Rai journalist Luigia Sorrentino.

In May 2013, in Rome, Luigia Sorrentino realized the last and touching video-interview with Seamus Heaney which will be shown for the first time in full English in Ireland on June 12th at the Italian Institute of Culture in Dublin.

Our “Italian homage” to Seamus Heaney, will be introduced and moderated by Giuliana Adamo (Trinity College Dublin).
