Alberto Pincherle. 1907-1990
Alberto Moravia, one of Italy's most productive writers, was born in Rome in 1907. Although years of illness prevented formal education, he turned to writing at an early age, publishing his first novel in 1925. His books were banned during the later years of fascism, and he himself was forced into hiding during the German occupation of Italy. his uncanny ability to project the reader into the life of his characters makes him a novelist of the broadest appeal.
