This section of Il Pietrisco is directed by Anna Aresi and Monica Boria
This section of Il Pietrisco aims to reflect the dynamic, kaleidoscopic world of literary translation today, focusing on world literature in any language translated into English. We are especially interested in underrepresented realities of any kind, included but not limited to underrepresented languages and experiences, and in texts and translations that challenge, enrich, and broaden our understanding of the contemporary world and global society.
Although we welcome translations of all types of texts, each issue will have a specific focus.
For the inaugural 2021 issue, we are accepting translations of 21 st century poetry, especially texts about the current pandemic.
