Alessandro Manzoni

a.k.a. Alessandro Francesco Tomasso Manzoni

Author Code: TAFM

Born: Mr. 7, 1785 - Milan, Italy

Died: May 22, 1873 - Milan, Italy

From a literary family which included the author Cesare Beccaria, Manzoni began an interest in poetry when he was about fifteen. At that time he produced two excellent sonnets, which highlighted the talent that was to come. In 1805, he moved to Auteil outside Paris where his estranged mother had settled. He married in 1808 and the couple settled in Lombardy; Manzoni then spent a number of years as a landholder before again turning to literary pursuits. In 1819, he published Il Conte di Carmagnola, a tragedy which divided the critics. Manzoni's magnum opus, The Betrothed (I Promessi sposi) appeared in three volumes between 1823 and 1827. Considered to be one of the world's greatest masterpieces, The Betrothed introduced the model of modern Italian language and established Manzoni in the literary world. In 1860, Manzoni was named a senator by King Victor Immanuel II. Manzoni died from cerebral meningitis and received a state funeral. Giuseppe Verdi produced his Requiem in honor of Manzoni. His other works include In Morte di Carlo Imbonati (1806), Urania (1809), La Resurrezione (1812), Il Nome di Maria (1813), Il Natale (1813), La Passione (1815), Il Cinque Maggio (1821), La Pentacoste (1822), L'Adelchi (1822) and Storia della Colonna Infame (1840).
