From the otherworldly voyage depicted in Dante’s Divina Commedia and the early modern utopias by Giordano Bruno and Tommaso Campanella, up through the proto-SF of Primo Levi and the Imaginary Fiction of Tommaso Landolfi and Italo Calvino, Italy has always been a cradle of fantastic literature. This anthology highlights the works of award-winning and emerging writers of contemporary Italian science fiction and will introduce international readers to exciting stories they wouldn’t otherwise be able to read. Represented here are some of the winners of the Urania Award (Italy’s most prestigious SF award), authors published by major Italian publishing houses, with stories that explore a wide range of topics, including bio-ethical issues, AI, transhumanism and posthumanism, climate fiction, and environmental concerns.
