Born: Nov. He learned German and French and even wrote some French poetry. He left the sanatorium in and moved to Bressanone and later became a journalist in Turin for a magazine to which he contributed some of his short stories. His first novel, Gli Indifferenti Time of Indifference appeared in and was a sensation. Many of his novels explored alienation and social trauma and made him one of Italy's most important 20th century authors. His works were translated into some thirty languages and several of his novels were made into films, the most famous of which was Two Women Moravia was critical of Fascism in Italy and often had to travel abroad in order to avoid trouble with the authorities. When Nazi Germany occupied Rome in , his name was on a list of anti-Fascists and he was forced to flee to the mountains until the Allies liberated Rome in Following the war, Moravia's output was prolific and highly successful, although because his works often contained sexual content, the Vatican declared his works immoral and placed them on the Forbidden Books list.

It is also a very good study of character. Moravia very first novel is quite ambitious. Given its mature feel, it is hard to believe that the author was so young when he wrote it.

The writing is very precise. The novel is written in a realistic style. The characters are studied and described with accuracy, without too much mercy, one could add. With a novel whose pace is as slow as this one hardly anything happens in the conventional sense of the word, most of the novel takes place within the heads of the characters , it is up to the characters to make the matters interesting.

These five sure manage to do that. Who are the characters then? A family, for five out of five characters in this novel live together in a villa. The fifth character Lisa is connected with them by past. A sort of a family saga then? This novel tells a story of one very unhappy family. Mariagrazia, who is, like all the other characters, a creature incapable of finding her place in the world.

Mariagrazia who worries about her increasingly bored lover Leo leaving her. A woman of little imagination. Not at all. She shows little candid interest in her children. Mariagrazia is incapable of understanding that the world that she belongs to is long gone and for all her talk of sophistication seems to be a lady of a limited intelligence.

Her lover Leo is more important to her than her children, and her children are of more interest to Leo than herself, albeit not in a normal way. Her children are interested in nothing, a passive decedents of a dying class.

Why he treated Lisa for Mariagrazia is not elaborated on and perhaps it is not important for the context of the novel. Sensing that Leo is growing apart, Mariagrazia suspect he has something to do with Lisa, her friend, the lady she stole Leo from in the first place. Eugenio Baroncellisec. Andrea Canobbiosec.

Award for best motivation: Toni Marainiter. No review of the novel has ever been published in Italy. Moravia and Fascism Was Carlo Rosselli right?

Was he any less inclined to self-censorship than other novelists? What evidence does the novel provide about his attitude? It transpires that Andreina had been thrown out of her modest family home by her father, a schoolteacher with a persecution complex, because of her sexual precocity. Pietro and Andreina begin an affair which both realise will destabilise a whole set of relationships and will destroy their chances of wealth and social advancement.

The novel ends in theft and murder. Moravia, after the event, tells us he was trying to write with a tone of existential violence, in the manner of Dostoyevsky. Whatever the tone, the attitude and the intention, the plot in outline could sustain either a comedy, a bedroom farce or a tragedy. What should have alarmed Fascists, and challenged Fascist identity, is the fact that the male characters are not in control of the plot. Just as Fascist masculinity was embodied in the figure of the soldier, womanhood represented domesticity, motherhood and submissiveness.

You could not find a more apposite title. But there is none of this in the book, not even the faintest echo. Instead he limits himself to a few individuals who vegetate on the margins of this as of any society. These decadent, neurotic and self-destructive models of behaviour were now of the type which Fascism sought to suppress. Considering the wave of praise that greeted his first novel seven years ago, Gli Indifferenti [.

Those from whom one would be least prepared to expect a sermon have not hesitated to express strong moral indignation over the depravity of the young author. The greater part have refused to write about the novel at all. Its subsequent publication history over the following decade is one of the more telling in terms of Fascist cultural policy.

Early in it appeared that the book would not be published in Italy. These are carefully chosen words. His words to Ciano read far more like the behaviour of a subtle ironist who wants to have his novel published. We have seen above that the wave of Fascist censorship which began in had its origins in racism.

Technically Moravia Modern Italy could and did claim that he was not Jewish, despite his Jewish paternity Fabre , pp. Again he wrote a letter, this time to Mussolini himself.

It is true that my father is an Israelite; but my mother is of pure blood and of Catholic religion and is the sister of Your undersecretary for communications.

Moravia made a legal challenge to his categorisation as a Jew, on the grounds that he had been baptised before and that he had two Italian parents.

He was unsuccessful, and documents in his police files continue to refer to him as a Jew. His new publisher Bompiani who had bought the rights to Gli Indifferenti in was permitted to publish a new book, I sogni del pigro, in September , on the grounds that Moravia was not a Jew. Moravia also continued to publish as a journalist, until 13 February , when the Ministry for Popular Culture Minculpop instructed all newspaper editors to have nothing further to do with him Cassero , p.

But the story of Le ambizioni sbagliate did not finish there. After a brief investigation the Prefect reported that Mondadori had no copies of the book remaining and that its inclusion in the catalogue was a clerical error. Fabre has demonstrated that this was no error, that Mondadori did intend to republish the book, which had sold well, and indeed that Mondadori did reprint it in July , on the grounds that Moravia was not a banned author.

Bompiani published another new Moravia novel, La Mascherata, in May , once one offending sentence had been removed. The publication of this novel, a parody of a South American dictatorship very obviously based on the real Italian model, must be one of the most bizarre decisions made by the State bureaucracy of censorship in the Fascist period, and it suggests that things were running out of control.

The first print run sold out over the summer of and G. Talbot an application for permission to reprint in September was turned down. Conclusion Moravia straddled a fault line in Fascist cultural policy.

He was the one truly successful young novelist to emerge during the Fascist period, winning an international reputation for his first novel, written while still a teenager. The regime wanted standard-bearers but not ones writing about crime, violence and systematic betrayal, as in Le ambizioni sbagliate.

But while clearly it is not a Fascist novel, it is not really an anti-Fascist novel either.

The Time of Indifference

The significance of the novel is bound up less with authorial intention and more with the historical circumstances of its early reception, and relationship of the State to the individual in Fascist Italy. It is a documented fact that Moravia was watched closely, his mail was monitored from and the family telephone was tapped for most of the war, until 25 July The race laws were applied to him, albeit not consistently, and he was included on the list of banned authors in He is taken to task for his presentation of the Professor and his wife in Il Conformista as a slur on the memory of his cousin Carlo Rosselli and his English wife Marion Cave.

It is important to go back to the sources and not to use them selectively. The literary evidence does not suggest much self-censorship. His letters to Ciano and Mussolini are pragmatic but also subtly ironic pieces of self-preservation in response to the threatened non-publication of his second novel and the end of his livelihood as a writer.

The threats were far from idle ones. In Jews and those regarded as Jews in Italy were being treated with suspicion. By , they were at risk, even if the risk was less than that of being a Jew in the greater German Reich. Read naively, out of context, the letters may be misleading as to his attitude to Fascism.

His earlier letter to Ciano was published in Moravia Talbot [2] The essential prolegomenon to any discussion of the historiography of Fascist Italy, up to the late s, is Bosworth , The Italian Dictatorship: Problems and Perspectives in the Interpretation of Mussolini and Fascism.

Most of the secondary sources I draw on have been published since this book appeared. On Marinetti as a forerunner of Fascist style see Nicholls , pp. Mussolini wrote a preface for the edition of his Il Porto sepolto.

The English translation is that of Doug Thompson, in Thompson De Begnac , pp. See also Fabre , pp. Between and he received 9, lire and by September he was receiving 1, lire per month through Minculpop.

For a profile of Prefects during the Fascist period see Morgan He wrote: When Mussolini created the Italian Academy he may have hit upon a shrewd political move, but he was not furthering the cause of Italian letters, for by holding up before the eyes of the more important literati the mirage of membership in the new body which sits in the Farnesina, with its appanage of One by one, like flowers before the storm, head after head has bowed itself before the power that holds the key to glory.

Last year Adriano Tilgher, who had been the leader of the literary opposition to Fascism and, with the surcharged venom of his pen, had written in the famous Becco Giallo, quips which have not yet been forgotten, crept into the fold; this year Vincenzo Cardarelli, who, in all justice be it said, was never in any way, far from it, an opponent of the regime.

A1, b. Moravia, however, was also an occasional contributor to Il Tevere. See Collotti , pp. Indeed some of the most respected critics say that like all true novelists he is essentially a moralist and that the sometimes excessive realism which he uses to describe certain parts of society is not at all gleeful, but instead tends to criticize vices and shameful acts whose existence cannot truthfully be denied. Bellavia organised a network of spies and informers for the Polizia Politica in Paris in the s.

See Franzinelli , especially pp. See Fabre , p. It is a novel which should be brought to your attention because like all such things which come from Jewish blood, it contains a grave danger for anyone coming into contact with it. That is to say it exudes moral depravation and incitement, creating imaginary situations which lend themselves to interpretations which are very, very subtle and dangerous.
