Brasch PQ4731 R6 D5
Roma: Edoardo Perina
The Anglo-Italian Rossetti family was close-knit and highly educated. The patriarch, poet and scholar Gabriele Rossetti (1783-1854) was born in Italy. He settled in London in 1824 after being exiled for his political views. In 1826, he married Italian émigré Frances Polidori (1800-1886), sister of Gothic novelist John Polidori (1795-1821). Rossetti taught Italian at King’s College in London, and there he continued writing political poetry, including Dio e l’Uomo [God and Man], first published in 1833. His four children – Maria, Dante, William, and Christina – all carried on their familial legacy, becoming celebrated writers, poets, and painters.
