Eugenia Codronchi Argeli

She was the daughter of Giovanni Codronchi Argeli, Senator and Minister for Education, which enabled her to attend the most important literary groups of the time. She met such illustrious writers as Carducci and Pascoli, and she herself was a writer – under the pen name of “Sfinge”.


Among her conspicuous writings one must remember her short stories – often describing the area of the Romagna Region – her novels – rather autobiographical and usually set in aristocratic surroundings– and her feminist works, which categorised her among the most significant female writers of the beginning of the 20th century.
