Notes
Vittorio G. Rossi, a renowned journalist and special correspondent of the Corriere della Sera newspaper, a well-known writer on travel and the sea, was born in Santa Margherita Ligure in 1898. His study, donated to the town after his death, has been relocated to Villa Durazzo, where various artefacts testify to the writer's adventurous career as a special correspondent. The items on display include memoirs of a life, including those linked with his travels at sea, Haitian artefacts, a library of texts of anthropological and ethnological interest, and signed photographs of famous men such as Lawrence of Arabia, Nasser, Saragat and the writer's friend Dino Buzzati, as well as objects recalling famous events he witnessed, such as the moon landing or the war in Algeria. The collection also includes editions of his novels and magazines containing his articles.
