Portrait of a Traveling Lady. Gottardo Pallastrelli and Helen Langdon in conversation

Italian writer Gottardo Pallastrelli will be in conversation with author Helen Langdon about his last book, "Ritratto di Signora in Viaggio – Un’americana cosmopolita nel mondo di Henry James (“Portrait of a Traveling Lady – A cosmopolitan American in the world of Henry James”).

Ritratto di Signora in Viaggio – Un’americana cosmopolita nel mondo di Henry James (“Portrait of a Traveling Lady – A cosmopolitan American in the world of Henry James”) is the biography of American Caroline Fitzgerald, reconstructed after Pallastrelli found 19 letters that British author Henry James and Fitzgerald exchanged. Thanks to these letters, it was possible to recreate the social and cultural context of the end of the 19th and the beginning of the 20th centuries, adding to the book’s value.

Caroline Fitzgerald was a true cosmopolitan woman for the time, an explorer willing to experience every kind of adventure that continents such as Europe and Asia had to offer. Her meeting with Henry James would become the perfect complement to both of their lives. He saw in her the reflection of his books’ heroines, and, at the same time, found inspiration for his future novels. Thanks to him, Caroline recovered her passion for literature.

Gottardo Pallastrelli is a writer, art historian, and lawyer. He studied the journeys of American intellectuals in IX and XX century and he is one of the curators of the exhibition "Words, books and letters: Henry James and Italy, Henry James and Rome".
