  • Hemingway Americani e Volontariato. In Italia nella Grande Guerra by Giovanni Cecchin

    Hemingway Americani e Volontariato. In Italia nella Grande Guerra by Giovanni Cecchin

    In 1918, Ca’ Erizzo became the seat of Section I of the American Red Cross ambulance units. John Dos Passos, Sydney Fairbanks, and Dudley Poore were among the many Harvard students who were quartered in the villa. In October of that year, Ernest Hemingway also stayed in the villa. His 1919 short story “The Woppian Way” or “The Passing of Pickles McCarty” (included in the book) mentions Ca’ Erizzo and the Arditi, the elite assault troops who were based at Bassano at the time. Written by one of the most respected experts on the American participation in the first world conflict in Italy, this volume contains rare archival photographs and documents providing insight into the people and places Hemingway encountered when he served as an ARC volunteer.

  • On Hemingway’s Trail in the Veneto ed. by Fondazione Luca

    On Hemingway’s Trail in the Veneto ed. by Fondazione Luca

    On Hemingway’s Trail in the Veneto is the second volume of the series edited by Fondazione Luca and published by Hemingway and the Great War Museum.

    Although Hemingway is most often associated with Chicago, Florida, the Paris of the 1920s, Spain, Cuba and Africa, Italy was equally important in his life and work – and especially the Veneto. “I’m an old Veneto boy myself. I love it and know it quite well” Hemingway once wrote to the American art critic Bernard Berenson, who lived at Fiesole. It was the Veneto which gave Hemingway his first brush with war at the Austrian front in he First World War (A Farewell to Arms), and Venice which provided him with inspiration after the Second World War (Across the River and Into the Trees), and helped him to recuperate after he was seriously injured in two plane crashes while on safari in Africa in the 1950s. His love of Italy never left him. “Sometimes I think we only half live over here. The Italians live all the way” Hemingway wrote to his sister Marcelline after his return from the Italian-Austrian front in 1919. Richard Owen

  • Fiesta: the sun also rises by Ernest Hemingway

    Fiesta: the sun also rises by Ernest Hemingway

    Paris in the twenties: Pernod, parties ad expatriate Americans, loose-living on money from home. Jake is wildly in love with Brett Ashley, aristocratic ad irresistibly beautiful, but with an abandoned, sensuous nature that she cannot change. When the couple drifts to Spain to the dazzle of the fiesta and the heady atmosphere of the bullfight, their affair is strained by new passions, new jealousies, and Jake must finally learn that he will never possess the woman he loves. Powerful, intense, visually magnificent, Fiesta is the novel which established Ernest Hemingway as a writer of genius.

  • Green Hills of Africa by Ernest Hemingway

    Green Hills of Africa by Ernest Hemingway

    "I remember seeing the lion looking yellow and heavy-headed and enormous against a scrubby-looking tree in a patch of orchard bush and P.O.M. kneeling to shoot him. Then there was the short-barrelled explosion of the Mannlicher and the lion was going to the left on a run, a strange, heavy-shouldered, foot-swinging, cat run. I hit him with the Springfield and he went down...".

    Returning to his love of the African continent and its wildlife, Hemingway captures brilliantly the thrill and excitement of the hunt for big game.

  • Across the River and into the Trees by Ernest Hemingway

    Across the River and into the Trees by Ernest Hemingway

    The war is just over. In Venice, a city elaborately and affectionately described, Richard Cantrell, an American colonel, falls passionately in love with Renata, a young Italian countess who has “a profile that could break your or anyone else's heart.” Cantrell is embittered, war-scarred, old enough to be Renata's father but is overwhelmed by the selflessness and freshness of the love she is offering. But this is no fairy tale. The fighting may be ended, but the wounds of war have not yet healed. And for some, the longed-for peace has come too late.

  • DVD Museo Hemingway e della Grande Guerra

    DVD Museo Hemingway e della Grande Guerra

    An elegant building from the 15th century in Bassano del Grappa, Villa Ca' Erizzo-Luca is situated on the eastern riverbank of the Brenta river, near “Ponte Vecchio,” the wooden bridge designed by Andrea Palladio. Now the seat of Fondazione Luca’s Ernest Hemingway and The Great War Museum, during World War I the villa was populated by volunteers of Section One of the American Red Cross, including Hemingway. The future Nobel prize-winner and all the other volunteers who stayed in the villa in 1918, most of whom Harvard students and alumni, wrote about it. The museum was born to tell their stories and provide archival documentation about the United Stated during the first world conflict, contributing to the enhancement of the prestigious image Ernest Hemingway bestowed on Italy and Veneto during his many visits to Belpaese.

    TIZIANO BULLATO INTERVIEWS JOHN HEMINGWAY

    John Hemingway is a fifty-year-old man with brown eyes. He is wearing a grey suit with a white shirt open at the neck. Although it is October, the weather is still warm. We wander around the park of Villa Ca’ Erizzo-Luca, an elegant building along the Brenta river who is going to be turned into a museum dedicated to his grandfather and his participation in World War One. The villa, which was the seat of Section One of the American Red Cross, hosted, among many other ARC volunteers, Ernest Hemingway. At the time a nineteen-year-old man, Hemingway did not know he was to become one of the greatest writers of the twentieth century. The Old Man and the Sea was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction in 1953 and contributed to award the Nobel Prize for Literature to Hemingway in 1954.
