Without Fernanda Pivano the great American beat-generation literature would not have arrived in our country as we know it. What Pivano did was not simply to translate works by illustrious authors such as Ernest Hemingway, Jack Kerouac, Allen Ginsberg and Charles Bukowski; but above all to make an important work of cultural mediation between the American "libertine" literary expressiveness of those years and the "censorial" spirit typical of Italy in the same period. Fernanda was a free woman; the journey for her was an existential metaphor, something she did all her life and that made her a true rock star on the international cultural scene - she had intense relationships with Bob Dylan and Patti Smith. Genoese by birth, but Milanese by adoption; Fernanda lived in Milano with her great love: the architect and designer Ettore Sottsass.
