ITALIAN DESCRIPTION:
"Un libro che va di diritto a situarsi in quella tradizione dove Verga, De Roberto, Lampedusa hanno generato spirito e stile." (Enzo Siciliano, 'Corriere della Sera') Sicilia, prima metà del Settecento. Marianna, una bambina destinata come le sorelle e le cugine al matrimonio o alla clausura. Ma Marianna è diversa dalle altre, è sordomuta e se vuole comunicare con il mondo nel quale vuole vivere, deve imparare a esprimersi scrivendo. Una storia appassionata che ci racconta la lotta di una donna straordinaria che sa affrontare la vita con coraggio e passione. Questo drammatico viaggio nell'intimità più profonda di una donna e dei suoi silenzi.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION:
Set in Sicily in the early eighteenth century, "The Silent Duchess" is the story of Marianna Ucrìa, the daughter of an aristocratic family and the victim of a mysterious childhood trauma that has left her deaf and mute, trapped in a world of silence. Set apart from the world by her disability, Marianna searches for knowledge and fulfillment in a society where women face either forced marriages and endless childbearing or a life of renunciation within the walls of a convent. When she is just thirteen years old, Marianna is forced to marry her own aging uncle. Her status and wealth as a duchess cannot protect her from many of the horrors of that time.... It is not until the death of her "uncle-husband" that Marianna at last gains freedom from her life of subservience: she learns to manage her estates and to love a man as she had never loved her husband, and she also learns of the unspeakable events that led to her lifelong silence. In luminous language that conveys both the keen visual sight and thedeep human insight possessed by her remarkable main character, Dacia Maraini captures the splendor and the corruption of Marianna's world and the strength of her spirit. "The Silent Duchess" is the timeless story of one woman's struggle to find her own voice after years of silence.
