Life as a work of art The free existence of Gabriele D’Annunzio.

'Signora Libertà, Signorina Fantasia'

A compelling biography of Gabriele D’Annunzio, La vita come opera d’arte (Rizzoli) by Giordano Bruno Guerri breaks down preconceptions ‘that seemed inestimable’, reconstructing a revolutionary, adventurous, rebellious and passionate existence. The point of observation is that of D’Annunzio’s widow, who casts her gaze on the poet who made his life the most absolute expression of freedom.

In dialogue with Marco Leonardi, historian and lecturer at the University of Catania.
