Markó utca 1, Budapest
A Sicilian author (1896-1957) whose most renowned piece of work is also his only fiction. Gepard was later also made into a film by Luchino Visconti. The author served in the army and following the Battle of Caporetto he found himself in a Hungarian prison camp from which he managed to escape. He returned to Sicily after the end of the war, begun to travel with his mother and continued in linguistic studies. It was during that period that the theme of the novel fledged in his head, originally as a story taking place during a single day, as does the Ulysses.
