Curzio Malaparte  His works 


Life

This famous writer and journalist coming from Tuscany bought Punta Masullo, a peninsula of the island, in 1938. He made built his wonderful house there, which is an outstanding example of rational architecture. Villa Malaparte, as it's named by the inhabitants, overlooks this part of the island coast with its extreme beauty. The eye of the tourist hugging this side of the coast is immediately caught by the villa outside walls, which are of a brilliant Pompeian red.
Our writer wanted to build his house according his personal taste, which is of a good kind because it harmoniously melts with the island scenery.
Malaparte spent the most relaxing and productive period of his life in this villa. He loved taking sun tan and he could spent hours lying on this purpose. For this reason he ordered the construction of a terrace where no one could cast a glance.
His real name was Kurt Suckert and he was born from German father and Italian mother. He attended the secondary school in his native town, Prato and then he joined the Italian army in the battle against Austria, in 1915. Politically he was always engaged: first he support the republican party, then he became a member of the Fascist one, changing another time his ideas in 1933.
He began to write as a journalist for Il Mattino and La Stampa (Italian newspapers) until he was definitively exiled in Lipari by Mussolini because of his anti-Fascist ideas. His situation evolved thanks to Galeazzo Ciano's support: he could start again writing and circulate all over Europe.
He travelled abroad and during Worl War Two he was war-correspondent from Russia, France and Finland. During one of his last tour he met Mao Tse tung and interviewed him: it was 1957. Unfortunately he caught a terrible infection in China and he was obliged to come back in Italy, where he died in a few days time.
