Pizzicaluna a l’Alguer. Antoine De Saint-Exupéry ad Alghero
The scholar and historian Massimiliano Fois presents the last months of the life of Antoine De Saint-Exupéry, the author of the famous ’The Little Prince’, who lived in Alghero before taking flight to France and sinking into the sea between Corsica and the French coast. His plane, with which he had to photograph enemy positions to facilitate landing in France, was shot down by a German plane that ironically was piloted by a great admirer of Saint-Exupéry’s books. Pizzicaluna was the nickname given to Antoine who was always looking at the sky like his character. The book is enriched by unpublished photos of the aviator-writer Antoine De Saint-Exupéry.
Massimiliano Fois (26 March 1975) is a writer, publicist and artistic director of the Antoine de Saint-Exupéry Alghero Museum, including Un’altra Alghero (Panoramika, 2008), written with Raffaele Sari Bozzolo, Blue hotel (Panoramika, 2005), Sangremar (Nemapress, 2012) and Breviario per notturni campestri (Nemapress, 2018).
