Italian Rinascita for a Persian Requiem

Italian is the 16th language into which Daneshvar’s classic WWII epic has been rendered. Let’s hope that as little as possible is lost in Francesco Brioschi’s translation between these two historic and melodic tongues.

Savushun (Persian Requiem) is the most acclaimed novel of the prominent female novelist Simin Daneshvar.
