abstract

This article presents some details concerning the first edition of Carlo Levi’s Christ stopped at Eboli (Einaudi, Rome 1945). In particular, it focuses on Levi’s dedication to Anna Maria Ichino, the woman that provided him a safe place to hide from the nazifascist persecution from late 1943 until the Liberation of Florence (August 1944), the very months that he wrote his book. This dedication was published in haste, with limited copies of the first edition, thereafter never to be reprinted. A little story from Florence just after WWII, between nazifascist persecution, Italian Resistance Movement, publishing, and love affairs.
