Giovanni Pascoli


Italian poet, classical scholar and an emblematic figure of Italian literature in the late nineteenth century. The author of graceful, melancholy lyrics, he was, together with Gabriele D'Annunzio, the greatest Italian decadent poet. He was a Professor of Italian literature.

On the evening of 10 August 1867, 11-year-old Pascoli was orphaned when his father was murdered.

On 6 April 1912, already ill with cirrhosis (from alcohol abuse), Giovanni Pascoli died of liver cancer at the age of 56 in Bologna. An atheist, he was entombed in the chapel annexed to his house at Castelvecchio, where his beloved sister Maria would also be laid to rest.
