Nonino Prize "autore italiano" 1991

Domenico Rea

Original writer and narrator of intense and abrupt power, far from the great circus of pseudo-literature and its ephemeral seasonal fashion, Domenico Rea with “Crescendo napoletano” enriches his almost half century old creative activity with another pleasant and very human choral work. Also in these latest pages, taking from his innate capacity of seeing, hearing and capturing the multiform faces of popular reality, manages to represent with a somber and agile writing the Neapolitan metropolis, the symbol of the tearing anthropological change of the civil and human tissues of our social body, in the general dissolution of the values bound to the civilization of the earth.
