Matilde Serao

Author Code: TMSO

Born: Mar. 7, 1856 - Patras, Greece

Died: Jul. 27, 1927 - Naples, Italy

Born in Greece to an Italian father and Greek mother, Serao returned to Italy with her family when she was four. She received her basic education in Naples and eventually obtained a teacher's diploma. She worked as a teacher for a number of years before moving to Rome in the early 1880's. There she met and eventually married, Edoardo Scarfolgio, in 1885. Together, they founded the newspaper Il Coriere di Roma. When the paper failed in 1886, the couple moved to Naples. By this time, Serao had already established her literary credentials with a number of volumes of short stories and novels such as Cuore Inferno (1881) and Picole Anime (1883). In 1891, she founded Il Mattino which was very successful. In 1902, the couple became legally separated and Serao then founded her own newspapers La Settimana and Il Giorno, the latter of which ran until her death in 1927. Serao was also the first woman to accomplish this feat in Ialy. She was nominated for the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1926, but did not succeed. Unfortunately, only a few of Serao's works have been translated into English, but her recently revived popularity may see that change. Her works include Il Ventre di Napoli (1884), La Conquista di Roma (1885), Addio, Amore! (1890), Fantasia (1893), Il Delitto di via Chiatamone (1908), La Mano Tagliata (1912) and Mors Tua (1926).
