Link to publisher version (URL)
This paper proposes a review of narrative set in the island of Filicudi by writers, two from the north of Italy, one from Germany and one from Australia, who, although not born on the island, have had a long and close connection. These writings are emblematic of the fascination that Filicudi, as indeed all the Aeolian archipelago, has had in recent times for many people who have been capitvated by its beauty and fascination to the point that they have returned there time and time again and, in some cases, have decided to settle there. Their ongoing discovery of the traditions, the history and the people of Filicudi has led them to express its realities and its magical and transcendental qualities in literary form.
