SERGIO ATZENI, GREAT WRITER GREAT TRANSLATOR
by Gianfranco Petrillo
Sergio Atzeni was not only a great writer, but a great translator. â€śtradurreâ€ť commemorates the 20th anniversary of his tragic death by republishing Patrick Chamoiseauâ€™s compassionate tribute to him, as well as the transcription of a seminar held by Atzeni at Parma University, with an introduction by Gigliola Sulis. An article by Paola Mazzarelli retracing Atzeniâ€™s career as a translator and Yasmina Melahouaâ€™s analysis of his translation of Texaco are also part of the remembrance.
