Innocence and Guilt: Domenico Starnone in Conversation with Antonio Monda


May 1 | Instituto Italiano di Cultura | NYC

The questions Machiavelli posed about agency and morality persist today, both despite and because of technological advances. Confronted with evil or with abuses of power, are we as accountable for our inaction as we are for our actions, and what is our responsibility to our fellow citizens? Does the writer have special responsibilities? Domenico Starnone, Italian writer, screenwriter, journalist, and novelist and Antonio Monda, author and director of the Rome film festival will discuss these topics and more in an intimate conversation. The conversation will be introduced by Director of the Italian Cultural Institute, Renato Miracco.

Co-sponsored by the Italian Cultural Institute
