The Italian Cultural Institute marks the first anniversary of the Grenfell Tower fire (14 June 2017). Ben Okri reads from his poem: Grenfell Tower, June 2017
Introduced by Marco Delogu
A year after the Grenfell Tower fire that cost the lives of 72 people, the Italian Cultural Institute remembers the victims with award-winning writer Ben Okri, author of the poem “Grenfell Tower, June 2017”, dedicated to the tragedy.

Ben Okri is a Nigerian poet and novelist, considered one of the foremost African authors in the post-modern and post-colonial traditions. Among many awards and honours, he won the Booker Prize for Fiction in 1991 for The Famished Road, making him the youngest ever winner of the prize. Other notable works are Songs of Enchantment and Infinite Riches (which, with The Famished Road, form a trilogy following the life of Azaro, a spirit-child narrator, through the social and political turmoil of an African nation similar to Okri’s remembrance of war-torn Nigeria), A Way of Being Free, Starbook, A Time for New Dreams.
