Alberto Moravia *

a.k.a. Alberto Pincherle

Author Code: TAMR

Born: Nov. 28, 1907 - Rome, Italy

Died: Sep. 26, 1990 - Rome, Italy

Moravia contracted tuberculosis of the bone at the age of nine, missing school and spending his early years in a sanatorium and at home. because of this, he was virtually self-taught and became an avid reader. He learned German and French and even wrote some French poetry. He left the sanatorium in 1925 and moved to Bressanone and later became a journalist in Turin for a magazine to which he contributed some of his short stories. His first novel, Gli Indifferenti (Time of Indifference) appeared in 1929 and was a sensation. Many of his novels explored alienation and social trauma and made him one of Italy's most important 20th century authors. His works were translated into some thirty languages and several of his novels were made into films, the most famous of which was Two Women (1961). Moravia was critical of Fascism in Italy and often had to travel abroad in order to avoid trouble with the authorities. When Nazi Germany occupied Rome in 1943, his name was on a list of anti-Fascists and he was forced to flee to the mountains until the Allies liberated Rome in 1944. Following the war, Moravia's output was prolific and highly successful, although because his works often contained sexual content, the Vatican declared his works immoral and placed them on the Forbidden Books list. Naturally, this only increased his popularity. His works include La Bella Vita (1935), La Caduta (1940), The Unfortunate Lover (1943), L'epidemia (1944), The English Officer (1946), La Romana (1947), Roman Tales (1954), The Fetish (1962), Him and Me (1971), Al cinema (1975) and Il Viaggio a Roma (1988).
