An evening about one of the most colourful writers of the last century, the Italian Curzio Malaparte (1898-1957) at the event of the recent publication of 'Diary of a stranger in Paris' in Dutch. ('Dagboek van een vreemdeling in Parijs', Arbeiderspers). With translator Jan van der Haar, writer Joris van Casteren and founder of Iconic Houses Network, Natascha Drabbe.

Malaparte was an early supporter of the Italian Fascist movement, who after the war veered to leftish political sympathies. He was also involved with the theatre and cinema and liked to bark like a dog at night. During his time as war correspondent for La Stampa, he uses his experiences for his best know novels Kaputt and Skin. Both an outspoken public figure and a recluse, he built a futuristic villa at Capri. Casa Malaparte will be much talked about this evening.
