Matteo Righetto lives and works in Padua, at the border of the wilderness of northeastern Italy. Many of his works take place in beautiful mountain landscapes that he knows deeply, having visited them since childhood backpacking with his father. Among his best-known novels are the winner of the Premio Cortina 2016, Apri gli occhi (Open Your Eyes). L’Anima della frontiera (The Soul of the Border) has become a literary success, and was sold in several countries before its publication in Italy. The author is now working on a sequel, L’ultima patria (The Last Homeland).
