Short biography
Information from the Italian Common Knowledge. Edit to localize it to the English one.
Italo Giovanni Calvino Mameli (Santiago de Las Vegas, 15 ottobre 1923 – Siena, 19 settembre 1985) è stato uno scrittore italiano. Intellettuale di grande impegno politico, civile e culturale, è stato forse il narratore italiano più importante del secondo novecento. Ne ha frequentato tutte le principali tendenze letterarie, dal Neorealismo al Postmoderno ma restando sempre ad una certa distanza da esse e svolgendo un proprio coerente percorso di ricerca. Di qui l'impressione contraddittoria che offrono la sua opera e la sua personalità: da un lato una grande varietà di atteggiamenti che riflette il vario succedersi delle poetiche e degli indirizzi culturali nel quarantennio fra il 1945 e il 1985; dall'altro, invece, una sostanziale unità determinata da un atteggiamento ispirato a un razionalismo più metodologico che ideologico, dal gusto dell'ironia, dall'interesse per le scienze e per i tentativi di spiegazione del mondo, nonché, sul piano stilistico da una scrittura sempre cristallina e a volte, si direbbe, classica[1] . I numerosi campi d'interesse toccati dal suo percorso letterario, sono meditati e raccontati attraverso capolavori quali la trilogia de I nostri antenati, il Marcovaldo, Le cosmicomiche, Se una notte d'inverno un viaggiatore, uniti dal filo conduttore della riflessione sulla storia e la società contemporanea.
