Perhaps renowned for his Viareggio Prize-winning, avant-garde short tale collection Centuria (1979), this Italian fiction writer, essayist, translator, journalist, and literary critic can be remembered for pretty much fifty other works, including Agli Dei Ulteriori (1972) and La Letteratura Arrive Menzogna (1967). In the 1960s, while an associate of the experimental authors’ society known as Gruppo 63, he penned and released an early-career function titled Hilarotragoedia. Many of his most well-known works had been translated into British by Henry Martin. He spent his youngsters in Milan, Italy, and passed away in Rome at age sixty-seven. He translated Edgar Allan Poe’s full short stories in to the Italian language.
