A flourishing expansion, but many gaps still exist

by Roberto Merlo

Italian translation of Romanian narrative saw an important expansion in 2007 and again in the period between 2010 and 2012. This was partly due to the long-standing presence of a large Romanian community in Italy; the literary expansion certainly benefited from Romania’s entry in the European Union, the financial support of the Romanian Cultural Institute, and the courage and commitment of publishers and translators.
