About this product
- DescriptionCarlo Levi (1902-1975) was a painter, writer, and antifascist Italian from a Jewish family whose political activism forced him into exile for most of the Second World War. Written as war clouds were gathering over Europe, this work is also a powerful indictment of our contemporary moral and political failures.
- Author BiographyCarlo Levi (1902-1975) was born in Turin and earned a degree in medicine, though he never formally practiced and instead gravitated toward painting and was an active participant in the anti-fascist underground. Twice arrested for his politics, and eventually exiled, he wrote a memoir entitled Christ Stopped at Eboli while hiding from the Nazis in Florence. After the Second World War, Levi divided his time between painting, politics (serving in the Italian Parliament), and writing. Upon his death, he was universally recognized as one of Europe's leading intellectuals. He is buried in Aliano.About the Editor:Stanislao G.
