About this ebook

Il 12 settembre 1919 Gabriele D’Annunzio occupa con un migliaio di uomini il porto adriatico di Fiume. In pochi giorni il suo esercito di “disertori” si moltiplica.
È una sfida al mondo intero.
Nei mesi precedenti all’Impresa umana una serie di discorsi, scritti e poemetti del Vate, che vennero raccolti nel volume Il sudore di sangue (Mondadori, 1931), testimonia il senso di appartenenza, nonché l’arditismo e l’italico furore che consentì alle legioni di D’Annunzio di occupare Fiume. Italia o morte è il più attuale, denso, e significativo tra questi ed è il fulcro della selezione qui proposta.
In un momento storico in cui l’amor patrio viene vilipeso di continuo, vale la pena di riflettere sugli uomini e sulle gesta che permettono tutt’ora al popolo italiano di affermare il proprio orgoglio.

Gabriele D'Annunzio

Gabriele D’Annunzio (1863-1938) was an Italian poet, playwright, soldier, and political figure. Born in Pescara, Abruzzo, D’Annunzio was the son of the mayor, a wealthy landowner. He published his first book of poems at sixteen, launching his career as a leading Italian artist of his time. In 1891, he published his first novel, A Child of Pleasure, followed by Giovanni Episcopo (1891) and L’innocente (1892), which earned him a reputation among leading European critics as a member of the Italian avant-garde. By the end of the nineteenth century, he turned his efforts to writing for the stage with such tragedies as La Gioconda (1899) and Francesca da Rimini (1902). Radicalized during the First World War, D’Annunzio used his experience as a decorated fighter pilot to spread his increasingly nationalist ideology. In 1919, he spearheaded the takeover of the city of Fiume, which had been ceded at the Paris Peace Conference. As the leader of the Italian Regency of Carnaro, he sought to establish an independent authoritarian state and to support other separatist movements around the globe, but was forced to surrender to Italy in December 1920. Despite his failure, D’Annunzio inspired Mussolini’s National Fascist Party, which built on the violent tactics and corporatist system advocated by the poet and his allies. Toward the end of his life, D’Annunzio was named Prince of Montenevoso by King Victor Emmanuel III and served as the president of the Royal Academy of Italy.
