Fabrizio Silei was born in Florence in 1967. An art school diplomate, graduated in Political Science, he has worked for years as sociologist for a number of research institutes focusing mainly on the themes of identity and memory. A writer and an artist, an expert on social communication, he is one of the new voices of Italian literature. In his books he is able to tackle with lightness and strength historical and social topics from a very personal point of view. His first novel Alice e i Nibelunghi has been praised both by critics and readers and in 2008 has been the only Italian novel finalist in the Unicef Prize on literature for man and children’s rights.
