Nicola Chiaromonte

Nicola Chiaromonte (1905 in Rapolla, Potenza – 18 June 1972 in Rome) was an Italian activist and author. In 1934 he fled Italy for France, after opposing Benito Mussolini's fascist government. During the Spanish Civil War, he flew in André Malraux's squadron, fighting against fascist supported General Francisco Franco. The character of Scali in Malraux's novel ''Man's Hope'' is based on Chiaromonte. After moving to New York in 1941, he took on an important role in the leftist anti-Stalinist intellectual scene of the period, writing for ''The Nation'', ''The New Republic'', ''politics'' and ''Partisan Review''. During the Cold War, he helped found, and served as editor, for the Italian journal ''Tempo Presente'', which was published by the Congress for Cultural Freedom (an organization with silent backing of the Central Intelligence Agency). Mary McCarthy was a close friend during his time in US. A foreword to the 1985 edition of Chiaramonte's book of essays ''The Paradox of History'' (1970) was written by Joseph Frank, a noted Dostoyevsky scholar. Provided by Wikipedia
