«Vorrei diventare una scrittrice importante» L’esordio romanzesco di Milena Milani

Abstract : The Storia di Anna Drei (1947) is analysed through a double level of reading inside the story that makes a good job of shedding light on the imaginary of the author, Milena Milani. On the one hand, there are retraced the stages of the conception of her first novel, as the writer recalled them in her autobiographical texts, in relation to the setting (Rome) she described in the novel she wrote in Venice and to the building, through her pages, of her figure as a writer. On the other hand, the story of the first edition of the novel, published in the series “Medusa degli italiani”, is investigated, following her participation in the Mondadori Prize, with which the publishing house had intended to open and renew its catalogue after the Second World War.
