Scope and Contents

The Foreign Press Service Literary File consists of 89 photographs, many of which are portraits of prominent Italian intellectuals of the first half of the 20th century, including Roberto Bracco, Benedetto Croce, Giovanni Gentile, Luigi Pirandello, Mario Puccini, Pier Maria Rosso di San Secondo, and Margherita Sarfatti. There are also photographs of Benito Mussolini, members of his family, and various other people associated with him, as well as views of his native town, Predappio, Italy. An index at the end of this guide lists photographers whose work is featured in this file. Further descriptions of some items are available in a card catalog in the repository.

This file forms a part of the Literary File Collection, which is comprised of photographs and albums withdrawn from the libraries and/or papers of literary figures, and generally include portraits and images collected by or of those figures.
