Writer. Born Alberto Pincherle, he was a major figure in the 20th-century Italian literature. In the 1930s he worked as a foreign correspondent for several major Italian newspapers and he travelled in the U.S., Poland, China, Mexico, and other countries. His works were censored by Mussolini's government, and placed by the Vatican on the 'Index librorum prohibitarum' (Index of Forbidden Books). Several of his books have been filmed, among them "Two Women" by Vittorio De Sica, "A Ghost at Noon" by Jean-Luc Godard" and "The Conformist" by Bernardo Bertolucci. Later in life, he entered the world of politics and represented Italy in the European Parliament from 1984 until his death.
