Her novel “Lessico famigliare“, first published in 1963 is a novelistic memoir of her upbringing and career. It paints an unusual portrait of everyday domestic life in Italy from the 1920s to the 50s.
The novel won the Strega Prize in 1963.
“La quotidiana solitudine è l’unico mezzo che noi abbiamo di partecipare alla vita del prossimo, perduto e stretto in una solitudine uguale.”
