Antonio Tabucchi
Antonio Tabucchi

Italian writer born in 1943, in Pisa. He was a Professor of Portuguese Language and Literature at the University of Genoa, and the director of the Instituto Italiano di Cultura in Lisbon. Devoted to the study of Fernando Pessoa, he not only produced essays on this author but also translated some of his works.

Along with his research and literary critic activity, he created a remarkable body of work as a fictionist, from which stand out Donna di Porto Pim (The Woman of Porto Pim, 1983), Notturno Indiano (Indian Nocturne, 1984), Piccoli Equivoci Senza Importanza (Little Misunderstandings of No Importance, 1985), and Sostiene Pereira (Pereira Maintains, 1994). The latter gave origin to the film with the same name, directed by Roberto Faenza and filmed in Portugal.

In 2001, an article he wrote about freedom of speech for the French newspaper Le Monde, which was translated by the Spanish newspaper El País, earned Antonio Tabucchi the Josep Maria Llado Award for Freedom of Speech, in Catalonia, Spain.

He passed away in Lisbon, on 25th March 2012.
