Luigi Malerba

Luigi Malerba (November 11, 1927 – May 8, 2008), born Luigi Bonardi, was an Italian author who wrote short stories (often written with Tonino Guerra), historical novels, and screenplays, and who co-founded the Gruppo 63, based on Marxism and Structuralism. Umberto Eco said that "Malerba was defined post-modern, but that's not all true, because he is maliciously ironic, unpredictable, and ambiguous".
