Summary
In September 1919 Gabriele D'Annunzio, successful poet and occasional politician, declared himself Commandante of the city of Fiume in modern day Croatia. His intention - to establish a utopian state based on his fascist and artistic ideals. It was a fittingly dramatic pinnacle to an outrageous career. Lucy Hughes-Hallett charts the controversial life of D'Annunzio, the debauched artist who became a military and national hero. His evolution from idealist Romantic to radical right-wing revolutionary is a political parable
