Robert Ludovico, director of the Italian Studies Program and co-editor of "Renato Poggioli. An Intellectual Biography," discussed the research presented in the book during panels in Florence and Bologna on Oct. 29-30. The work is co-edited by Lino Pertile and Massimo Riva.
The book was published by Olschki Editore of Florence, perhaps the most prestigious academic publisher in Italy, according to Ludvico. His presentations took place at the Gabinetto Letterario Vieusseux, a prominent institute in Florence, and at the University of Bologna.
