Source Notes

Sy Scholfield quotes from Casa Leopardi: la vita quotidiana e le vicende familiari by Francesco Paolo Maulucci Vivolo (Bastogi, 2001), page 5: "Paolina , come tutti gli altri , ha scelto l ' oscurità per venire alla luce . È nata , infatti , la sera del 5 ottobre del 1800 a un ' ora e un quarto dopo la mezzanotte."

(Translation: Paolina, like all the others, chose darkness to see the light. She was born, in fact, on the evening of 5 October 1800 at an hour and a quarter after midnight).
