Author: Amelia Rosselli

Born in Paris in 1930, Amelia Rosselli was the daughter of prominent anti-fascist martyr Carlo Rosselli, who, along with his brother Nello, were assassinated in Paris, by Mussolini's orders, in 1937. During the war she and her mother and brother moved throughout Europe and the US to escape the Nazis. These events and their aftermath had a lasting effect on Rosselli's mental health, and much of her life was spent in therapy. In 1996 Rosselli leapt to her death from her apartment in Rome. In addition to WAR VARIATIONS (Otis Books/Seismicity Editions, 2016), Rosselli published five other books of poetry, Serie ospedaliera (1969), Documento (1976), Impromptu (1981), Appunti sparsi e persi (1983), and Sleep (1992).
