The Mystery in Italy
As if in response to this name Old Homer , he showed, very early, a talent for verse and began having poems regularly accepted for publication at the age of fifteen. While these first poems were of a traditional rhymed and metered form, by Vecchi had become a Futurist who wrote in the avant-garde mode. From to , he actively participated in all the Futurist events and battles as a member of Marinetti's inner circle. In , Folgore distanced himself from the Futurists, perhaps in response to their increasingly explicit political alliances, without ever denouncing or personally rejecting them.
He became a humorist, publishing the two volumes of poetic parodies which critics consider his best work, Poeti contraluce and Poeti allo specchio He later published a parody of Italian novelists, Novellieri allo specchio During the s, '30s, and '40s, Folgore regularly gave talks on humor that included passages from these volumes; eventually he delivered these talks on the radio.
Folgore had a parallel career as a newspaper editor and columnist. During his Futurist period, he wrote for Lacerba , La Voce , and other avant-garde publications. From the '20s through the '50s he was on the staff of Il Travaso , while contributing humor pieces to several other Italian newspapers. Folgore was also a dramatist. During his Futurist period, he wrote pantomimes and ballets which were performed by the Teatro della Pantomima Futurista.
He subsequently wrote dozens of plays, many of them one acts, but a number of them full-length, the most well-known of which was Piovuta dal cielo In the s, he collaborated with composers in writing musicals. Beginning in the s and continuing for the rest of his life, Folgore wrote radio scripts for children's serial programs such as Il segretario dei piccoli , Radio Lilliput , and La bacchetta magica , as well as numerous special programs. He also wrote scripts for children's television programs.
Donna Folgore by Giovanni Faldella, First Edition
Finally, Folgore was a translator. He also translated and gave readings of Latin American poets of the post-war period. Folgore died in , by which time he had published more than twenty books, including poetry and short story collections, two novels, and collections of epigrams and fables. He had written at least seventy plays, a thousand radio and television scripts, and a thousand newspaper columns or articles. While little of this work is considered of lasting literary significance, Folgore's productivity was, apparently, a psychological necessity for him.
Afflicted with chronic melancholia, Folgore confessed that the only way he could face a new day was to begin, while shaving, to compose a poem or epigram in his head. Contact Library Reproductions and Permissions. The following books and periodicals, found among the Folgore Papers, are currently catalogued in the Getty Research Library. Il Travaso delle Idee , 28 issues, L'Urbe , Mercure de France , Mercure de France , ; La voce , The Luciano Folgore Papers disclose the development of a writer who was one of Futurism's inner circle in his youth, turned to humor writing in middle age, and became, finally, a children's radio and television scriptwriter.
Nearly everything the very prolific Folgore wrote is present in the archive, often in both handwritten and typewritten drafts. Among the books not represented in any form are Novellieri allo specchio , La trappola colorata , Nuda ma dipinta , and Mia cugina la luna.
Prose manuscripts include one Futurist manifesto and also provide glimpses of Marinetti from the viewpoint of a disciple who later left the movement, apparently without ill feeling. Clippings reviewing Futurist performances and exhibitions offer a sense of audience reception during the period. There are also photographs of Futurists, some of which are signed. At least half of the correspondence dates from after Folgore's Futurist period, and includes items from fellow writers, publishers, and fans of Folgore's radio programs.
The greater part of poetry, theater, fiction, and prose manuscripts are post-Futurist, including the handwritten draft of a novel and full-length plays. The hundreds of radio and television plays serve to document the early years of Italian mass media; books and other printed matter reveal source material for these plays. Post-Futurist photographs include views of Folgore's later professional life.
The correspondence consists of approximately 1, items written to Folgore, of which are from Futurists such as Marinetti 11 , Bontempelli 5 , Govoni 4 , Prampolini 6 , and Severini 6 , or from colleagues belonging to a later phase of Folgore's life. Approximately items are from literary associations and publishers, including some items from Franco Campitelli.
There are approximately letters from children responding to Folgore's radio programs. Approximately 50 letters or fragments of letters written by Folgore are filed together under his name. Letters to or from Folgore's wife, Valentina Scalzi, are filed together under her name.
Letters in Boxes 1 and 2 are from Folgore's Futurist colleagues, and from fellow writers, friends, and editors from his post-Futurist period. There are approximately items organized alphabetically by the author's last name.
