 Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa - Best of Sicily Magazine
The enigmatic, reclusive Prince Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa is one of Sicily's most celebrated novelists, and the only one to author a novel (The Leopard) that topped the bestseller lists internationally.
Born in 1896 to the Prince of Lampedusa, Giulio Tomasi, and Beatrice Mastrogiovanni Tasca Filangeri di Cutò, Giuseppe was, in effect, an only child, his elder sister having died very young.
The Prince of Lampedusa accurately described the decline of the "old" Sicilian aristocracy and its evolution into a vulgar, superficial parody of its former self, alongside the emergence of equally vulgar, materialistic "new classes." Despite a seemingly conservative point of view, it would be wrong to identify Giuseppe Tomasi as a snob.

 Emanuele Crialese: Lampedusa (Filmtipp)
Lampedusa, eine der Pelagischen Inseln, liegt südwestlich von Malta und gehört zu Italien.
Bei einem halbjährigen Aufenthalt auf Lampedusa hörte er von einer Legende, derzufolge auf der Insel einmal eine junge Frau lebte, die sich den strengen moralischen Regeln nicht beugen wollte und deshalb von den Bewohnern für verrückt gehalten wurde.
Die Vulkaninsel Lampedusa wird als karges, ausgedörrtes Land gezeigt, das vom klaren, blau schimmernden Wasser des Meeres umgeben ist, in dem es an Fischen nicht mangelt.

 Threepenny: Marías, Lampedusa
So passionate was Lampedusa's love of books that he even used them as strongboxes: he was in the habit of placing small quantities of money between the pages of various volumes, always forgetting afterwards, of course, in which book those notes were to be found.
Lampedusa was as eccentric and obsessive as all writers, even though he did not know he was a writer: he hated melodrama and Italian opera, which he considered a barbarous art; in fact, he hated anything explicit.
According to Lampedusa, what finally made him decide to write was seeing one of his cousins, Lucio Piccolo, another late starter, win both a prize and the applause of Montale for a volume of poems he had written.
