It's been 90 years since Grazia Deledda won the Nobel Prize for Literature: she was the first Italian woman to receive the coveted recognition. Google celebrates it with an image in the doodle of December 10th, the very day in which the "awarding of the 2017 Nobel Prizes" is staged in Stockholm and Oslo.
The Nobel PrizeThe writer, born in Nuoro, Sardinia, in 1871, was the first and only Italian woman to win the prize for Literature, the fourth woman ever. The prize was awarded to her "for her idealistic inspiration, written with representations of plastic clarity of the life of her native island, with a deep understanding of human problems".
The writer received the Nobel in 1927 although - technically - it was up to the previous year that had not been awarded because the commission of Academics, in 1926, had failed to find a candidate of value. she managed to enjoy this award only for a decade: he died in fact in 1936 due to a breast cancer.
