Early life and education[edit]

She grew up poor and received a Catholic education.[1] At 15, she came to Rome and said she hated at first sight but stayed, graduated, and studied philosophy.


In her eclectic production, which aims to fight loser of the feminine image, there are also different works, from the picaresque evil Memorie Malvagie (1976) to the meditative Vangelo secondo Maria (1979), a stronger work tinged with humor and provocation suchas Il signore è sevito (1983), Povera bambina (1988), Parliamo d'amore (1989), Delirio e Gianna Nannini from Siena, both from 1991, and Il promesso sposo (1994), a profile dedicated to the art critic Vittorio Sgarbi and presented in the guise of a "failed" autobiography.

As a kind of humor is 'La donna è un animale stravagante davvero: ottanta ritratti ingiusti e capricciosi' (1998), in which Alberti was an Don Giovanni imaginary beside some female figures notes of her generation.

In 2003, Alberti published Gelosa di Mayakovsky, the biography of the famous poet (for which, in the same year, she was awarded the Alghero Woman), and The Prince steering wheel, in which she told with malice and loving the life of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, while in 2006 the book of short stories the return of their husbands.

It is also the author of screenplays, including Il portiere di notte[2] by Liliana Cavani (1974) and Melissa P. (2005), and texts theater (Ecce Homo[3]).

As of 2009, she has held a pungent weekly column ("La posta di Barbara Alberti") of Il Fatto Quotidiano.[4]

Usually involved as a commentator on several television talk shows from Pomeriggio 5 to Italia sul 2 and leads La guardiana del faro[5], a weekly program aired on Sunday mornings from 9:00 to 10:00 on Radio 24, designed by Gianluca Nicoletti,[6][7] a cura di Gloria Guerrera.[8]

At the time, the famous curator of the letters section of Amica: "Paolo Pietroni, the director, was antipaticissimo but brilliant.

She was married to producer and screenwriter Amedeo Pagani,[9] which gave Gloria Samuela called Sami (1966) and Malcolm (1975). Pagani and Alberti were married three times: beginning in London to please her father, then in the Abbey of Casamari in Ciociaria to please his mother did not know that the wedding in London(for this mother it was necessary to also organize an engagement party for three hundred guests at the Casina Valadier in Rome, the Alberti showed up with the shaved head) and last time "in the house of Ananias grandfather, my father's father, with lots of dancing on the threshing floor." He then went home in 80, because in love with un'Elisabetta Billi and returned fifteen years later because of the children. They never divorced and Alberti calls him on his website 'then-husband, now a dear relative'.

In the early nineties she lost her head to Vittorio Sgarbi.

The protagonists of his novels launch all the same challenge: to find the most invisible among happiness. Creatures in revolt: injudicious old, children of hell, hell, saints. Come back often the religious argument. In the past decade has been passionate about the fantastic biographies of existing characters, living and dead.
