Stereotyped as the land of crime and intrigue, Italy has been the setting of many international best-selling mysteries. Politically committed, narratively sophisticated, and supremely enjoyable, the best Italian mysteries explore the dark side of Italy’s present, challenge ideas of justice, and seduce readers with the evocation of la dolce vita.


Winter Term: We will discuss Amara Lakhous’ Scontro di civilta’ per un ascensore a Piazza Vittorio (2006). Written in Italian by an Algerian author living in Rome and set in a multicultural apartment building in a Roman neighborhood, this best-selling short novel combines the mystery genre with social satire. Built around the testimonies of the people who live in the building where the murder occurs this mystery offers a fresh perspective on immigration, multiculturalism, and prejudice. Required reading: Scontro di civilta’ per un ascensore by Amara Lakhous.

Instructor: Maria Grazia Lolla
