“A Sienne Mistique je dédie ce songe moderne”. Le Ressac di Camille Mallarmé

Diego Salvadori


This article aims to analyse the novel Le Ressac (1912) by Camille Mallarmé, focusing, at first, on the literary representation of Tuscany (especially, the Chianti countryside), and then paying attention to the role played by the artistic heritage of Florence and Siena. Moreover, we want to give a comprehensive biographical portrait of Camille Mallarmé, in order to assess her primacy in the cultural exchanges between Italy and France.
