Salvatore Di Giacomo

Biography

Italian poet, songwriter, playwright and fascist intellectual, one of the signers of the Manifesto of the Fascvist Intellectuals.

Di Giacomo is credited as being one of those responsible for renewing Neapolitan dialect poetry at the beginning of the 20th century. The language of Salvatore Di Giacomo is, however, not the everyday Neapolitan language of his contemporaries; it has a distinct 18th-century flavour to it, archaisms that recall the golden age of Neapolitan culture, the period between 1750-1800, when Neapolitan was the language of the best-loved form of musical entertainment in Italy, the Neapolitan comic opera, and was even the language of the Bourbon court of Naples, itself.

He died 4 April 1934.
