Teaching with Arabic Literature in Translation: Algerian Literature in Italian

There are some complications in the North African country Algeria. Let me limit myself to the complications in the field of literature. I thought that Algerian literature was written in French, the language of the former colonial masters. And to be honest, most of Algerian literature is indeed written in French. But there is also Algerian literary writing in Arabic. In this article we discover some it, in the way of translation. Four Algerian books written in Arabic have been translated into Italian, a small harvest, but not to be discarded.
