Giovanni Testori (Novate Milanese 12 May 1923 – Milan 16 March 1993) was an Italian writer, playwright, art historian and literary critic. His literary works are characterised by linguistic experimentalism, featuring both lexicon and syntax that mix and fuse elements of the Lombard dialect with French and English. Religion is present in his oeuvre as a tragic tension to transcendence, marked by doubt, blasphemy and repentance.
