Italian writer Rosetta Loy dies at 91

The Italian writer Rosetta Loy, a member of the "Generation of the Thirties" and winner of the main literary prizes in her country, has died this Sunday in Rome at the age of 91, as confirmed by her own family to the media.

Born in Rome in 1931, she was part of the aforementioned literary generation with other great names in Italian literature born in that decade, such as Umberto Eco.

His career began in 1974 with the publication of La bicicletta, which earned him the prestigious Viareggio award. International success would come to him with Le strade di polvere (1988), translated into various languages ​​-in Spanish as Los Caminos de Polvo (Lumen)- and with which he won the Campiello award.

Another of his most remembered works was La parola ebreo (1997), in which he recognized that his family, bourgeois and Catholic, had resigned themselves to accepting the fascist Racial Laws without knowing the tragedy that would come during World War II.
