Lettere 1935-1972

Con una raccolta di racconti dispersi
  • Giuseppe Dessí,
  • Enrico Falqui,
  • Edited by:
  • Alberto Baldi,

Just over 150 epistolary pieces, from the twentieth-century archives of Florence and Rome, are published for the first time thanks to Alberto Baldi’s careful transcription, which does not only allow the reconstruction of the story of a friendship born around the pages of newspapers and consolidated over time to involve the partners of the two writers (Gianna Manzini, Lina Baraldi and Luisa Babini), but also follows Giuseppe Dessí’s presence in one of the most widely read newspapers in Rome. The editorial correspondence, started early by Falqui, the “mover of culture” and through frequency peaks (from 1948 to 1958), soon turned into the advice of a sympathetic reader who, despite the political dissensions for the conservative line of the newspaper "Il Tempo", deserves the credit of having continued a collaboration which would nourish some of the writer’s most significant collections of short stories. The book ends with thirty-eight narrative texts by Dessí, scattered on the «third page» and never collected in a volume before.

Giuseppe Dessí (1909-1977) is among the most significant and discreet Italian writers of the twentieth century. Born in Sardinia, he was able to conciliate a refined European culture and a deep bond with his homeland. This bond is a constant refrain of his narrative, from the novel San Silvano, inspired to the places of his childhood, to Paese d’ombre and La scelta, and is conveyed through the suggestion of mountain landscapes, myths and legends.
Enrico Falqui (1901-1974) was a figure of great importance in the cultural scene of the 20th century. Besides being a collaborator and editor of newspapers and magazines, he also played an important role as an essayist, anthologist and editorial consultant.
Alberto Baldi graduated in Modern and Contemporary Italian Literature at the Faculty of Literature and Philosophy of the University of Florence, and is part of a research group (under the guidance of Anna Dolfi) on the publication, cataloguing and commentary of contemporary texts.
