As someone who loved the book "Il Giardino dei Finzi-Contini," I would love to attend the following event!

The opening of "Celebrating Giorgio Bassani" in New York with the participation of Paola Bassani, daughter of the author, and featuring:

"The Painted Word"

An exhibition of paintings by Giorgio Morandi, Filippo De Pisis, Mario Cavaglieri, and Francis Bacon among other artists connected to Bassani’s emotional and inspirational world, with a selection of original manuscripts and letters.

Hi, did you actually go to the exhibition? I translated the texts for it...just wondering what it was like, since we could not come to NY...

Wow you translated the texts?! What did that consist of? (I mean what materials did you have to translate?)

I actually did not go; I wish I could have. "Giardino" is one of my absolute favorite Italian novels.
