Our Public Portfolio

In our initiative awards are not just awards. They are the catalyst for community participation and involvement. For the past fifteen years the Edinburgh Gadda Projects have developed a unique approach to academic public engagement through world-class research implemented and shared through the web media. To this, in 2010, our decennial, we added the Edinburgh Gadda Prize and Gadda Giovani.

Carlo Emilio Gadda, the Italian James Joyce, may be Italy’s best kept literary secret, but since 2000 has made Edinburgh his home. Over six million clicks do not happen by chance even in the world wide web. Our main website is the third most accessed online resource in the Humanities at Edinburgh.

And now, with initiatives on the ground mobilising scores of institutions and thousands of young people (150,000 people visited our Facebook Page in just six months in 2011) we are capitalising on our public engagement ethos through themed events programmes of the highest calibre involving international stars such as Nicola Benedetti and Fabrizio Gifuni.

Gadda Giovani 2011 and Edinburgh 2012Detecting Italy and Gadda Goes to War – have been real milestones in this respect. Through them we have hosted major sold-out events at the Teatro Franco Parenti, Milan (2011), and at the Traverse Theatre, Edinburgh (2012).

Typically, events comprise workshops, lectures, conferences, debates, exhibitions, installations, recitals and shows. Particularly significant, as part of Edinburgh 2012, was the UK premiere of Fabrizio Gifuni’s award-winning show L’ingegner Gadda va alla guerra and the first edition of our international junior mobility programme.
