"The Sincerity of Leo Tolstoy" Conference, April 7-9, 2010. Gargnano, Italy.

From April 7-9, 2010, scholars from Italy, Russia, Germany, England, and the United States gathered in the Palazzo Feltrinelli in Gargnano, Italy overlooking beautiful Lago Garda, to take part in a three-day conference on "The Sincerity of Leo Tolstoy. His Writings, Thought, and Life Considered on the Centenary of His Death" (La sincerita di Tolstoj. Letteratura, pensiero e vita a 100 anni dalla morte). The conference was ably and expertly organized by Laura Rossi and Damiano Rebecchini of the University of Milan. The weather was perfect, the views were stunning, the papers were provocative, and the food was Italian; it can sincerely be said that everyone had a splendid time. The proceedings of the conference will appear in the series "Quaderni di Acme" by Istituto editoriale universitario "Cisalpino."
