2 March-26 September 2010. This exhibition pays homage to the Italian writer and journalist Curzio Malaparte (1898-1957), whose official name was Kurt Erich Suckert, over 50 years after his death. The display includes original manuscripts and typescripts, documents, original objects and private photographs by Malaparte as well as an extensive correspondence with leading intellectuals of his time such as Henry Miller, Ezra Pound, Elio Vittolini, Joseph Prezzolini and Louis-Ferdinand Celine.

Malaparte was one of the most unusual and controversial interpreters of the Italian cultural scene of the 20th century. He was provocative in nature and was often accused of being inconsistent and a turncoat due to the various political ideologies (republicanism, fascism, anti-fascism, communism) that he embraced. His most famous books include Kaputt and The Skin, which are appreciated worldwide.

After its Milan showing this exhibition will travel to Prato, Malaparte
