Camillo Pellizzi, 'L’Isola del Trifoglio', Il Popolo d’Italia, 23 August 1923
Camillo Pellizzi was one of the founders of the Fascio di Londra and a frequent correspondent of Ezra Pound. He was chosen by Silvio D’Amico to contribute a book on English theatre when Carlo Linati turned down the offer and the book included a compelling analysis of contemporary Irish theatre. Pellizzi’s newspaper articles attempted to display fascism as welcome in a “Bolshevik-free” Ireland, by emphasizing the key role of the local fascist organization (founded by the shady figure Antonio Rodoani), as well as their good relationship with prominent politicians, such as the Minister for External Affairs Desmond Fitzgerald.
