Ferdinando Camon was born in 1935 in a small village in the Venetian countryside.
He defines himself as “storyteller of the crisis”: he wrote about the decline and disappearance of the agricultural society, terrorism, psychoanalysis and the arrival of immigrants.
“In his many literary works, he was able to combine the values of the ancient Venetian agricultural society with those of a society that is open but not subject to the illusions of progress.”
Specifically, the book “Memorial”, which won the Strega Prize in 1978, was translated in twenty-five countries. His works are published also in Braille edition in Italy and France.
