Italiani Per Vocazione: Voci Migranti In Cerca Di Ospitalità

  • E Benelli


This article explores the evolution of Italian migrant writing and its characteristics and analyzes the work of a young migrant writer, Jadelin Gangbo, who, with the novel Rometta e Giulieo, destabilizes the frontiers of fiction and the literary canon. The writer’s identity and the borders of fiction are redefined in this modern parody of Shakespeare where the narrator enters the world of his fictional characters. The role of migrant writing as a possible hospitable site in order to elaborate a new poetic and practice of hospitality is also examined.
