Gian Carlo Fusco (1 July 1915 – 17 September 1984), sometimes spelled Giancarlo Fusco, was an Italian writer, journalist, screenwriter and occasional actor.

Biography[edit]

Born in La Spezia, Fusco spent his childhood in a college in Lucca, and in 1935 he made his writing debut with the novel Biancherie, but the book was blocked by the Fascist censorship because considered defeatist. In 1949 he started his journalistic career working for the magazine Il Mondo, and in 1950 he began collaborating with L'Europeo; he then collaborated with a large number of publications, including L'espresso, II Giorno, Il Giornale d'Italia, ABC and Cronache.[1][2][3]

As a writer, Fusco is best known for the semi-autobiographical novel Le rose del ventennio, an ironical recount of the Fascist era. He was also active in the film industry as a screenwriter and an actor.[1][2][3]
