Emilio Salgari

Biography

Italian writer of action adventure swashbucklers (Swashbuckler is a term that emerged in the 16th century and has been used for rough, noisy and boastful swordsmen ever since) and a pioneer of science fiction.

For over a century, his novels were mandatory reading for generations of youth eager for exotic adventures. In Italy, his extensive body of work was more widely read than that of Dante. Today he is still among the 40 most translated Italian authors. Many of his most popular novels have been adapted as comics, animated series and feature films. He is considered the father of Italian adventure fiction and Italian pop culture, and the "grandfather" of the Spaghetti Western.

Salgari wrote more than 200 adventure stories and novels, setting his tales in exotic locations, with heroes from a wide variety of cultures

He died on 25 April 1911.
