Read full description of the books Roma senza papa: Cronache romane di fine secolo ventesimo:Roma senza papa fu il libro che rivelò Morselli. Quando il romanzo apparve, nel 1974, Giulio Nascimbeni scrisse sul «Corriere della Sera»: «La prima tentazione è di dire che c’è stato anche un Gattopardo del Nord. Viveva in luoghi profondamente lombardi, tra Gavirate e Varese. Scrisse migliaia di pagine. Sperò a lungo che gli editori si accorgessero di lui. È morto il 31 luglio dell’anno scorso. Adesso esce un suo romanzo, Roma senza papa, pubblicato dalla Adelphi, e se ne resta attoniti, come davanti a un frutto raro e inimmaginabile».
Read information about the authorGuido Morselli was an Italian novelist and essayist.
Guido Morselli was born in Bologna, the second son of a well-to-do family belonging to Bolognese bourgeoisie. Giovanni, his father, was a manager of Carlo Erba, a pharmaceutical firm, while his mother, Olga Vincenzi, was the daughter of one of the most prestigious lawyers in Bologna. The family moved to Milan in 1914. Morselli's childhood was quite serene, but his mother suffered from Spanish flu in 1922 and had to be committed to hospital for a long time.
After his graduation in 1935, he served in the Italian Army, attending the officer course for the Alpini corps. He then was sent to an infantry regiment in Milan. Subsequently he lived for a long time abroad (1936–37), writing reportages and short stories which remain unpublished. His father strives to push Guido towards a managerial career, and has him hired at Caffaro (a chemical company) as a promoter. This experience only lasted one year, and it worsened the relations between father and son. After the death of his beloved sister Luisa in 1938, Guido managed to obtain life income from his father which enabled him to devote himself to those activities he really loved: reading, researching, and writing. He kept writing short essays, and began a diary, which he continued till his death.
All his novels and essays were postuhumously published after Morselli committed suicide in 1973, due to the rejection of his manuscripts by many publishing houses, which were unable to assess their literary value.
