Paolo Valera
#46 - The disheveled journalist

Interpretato da: J. H.

Motto: How lovely were the evenings we spent together! I stepped into your pale cerise parlor, my cheeks blushing with shyness, my heart pounding, brushing against the rich carpets to the sudden thought of a flurry of kisses. You, illuminated by a twilight glow, your flashing eyes in the pale, sweet face, gave off a sigh that was all promise ...
Group: Artists and intellectuals
Teaser: Originally from Como and later choosing to become Milanese, son of a street vendor and a seamstress, Paolo Valera never achieved academic qualifications and though he professed himself sympathetic to the proletariat, the poor and the socialists with both pen and speech, had the good fortune to not labour a day in his life, instead earning a living thanks to his scathing and disrespectful journalistic prose. Always dedicated to the defense of the most miserable and to the regular and even titillating exposition of malfeasance and malpractice, he is known to maintain a contemptuous and riotous attitude towards the authorities and for being indicted for offenses to modesty, for incitement to hatred among the social classes , for affronts and defamation in brochures and articles. Prison, some say, is a place for martyrs and the poor, and Valera is not one to pretend to be either. And so, when a few years ago the police arrived to arrest him, he fled from Milan for the rigid but welcoming English shores. It is said of certain flavours that once acquired the palate can not go back, so has Paolo Valera acquired the taste for the beautiful Milanese salons, the parties and the graceful maidens of high society. He has never shown a hint of repentance or denied his many anarchist connections. He has created a double for himself, a curious, voracious, passionate and combative spirit whose detractors stigmatize with the pseudonym that he chose for himself when he published in the pages of ''Il Caricaturista'': Judas Iscariot.

Relations: Years ago he was acquainted with Hector Schmitz, but he was a very different man at the time. He has maintained correspondence with Guy de Maupassant and César Dyer. They say he has had a love affair with Charlotte Cotillard, Annie Besant and Miriam Alexandrine de Rotschild, and certainly has met with these ladies. He wrote an article on the so-called accomplishments of Eusapia Palladino, but she did not take kindly to the truth. It is also known that he has criticized the performance of Guillaume Bellegard harshly, calling it arid and boring before many members of Italian society.
