Daughter of Sicilian princess Topazia Alliata di Salaparuta, Dacia Maraini is an Italian novelist, philanthropist, playwright, muse and poet. She is well-known for such award-winning works as Isolina and La Lunga Vita di Marianna Ucria (which won Italy’s Book of the Year); a multi-decade companionship with author Alberto Moravia; and for the Teatro della Maddalena, her experimental theater company run solely by women.
