Archival Consistency.

15 envelopes with manuscripts, typescript correspondence, miscellaneous documentation and printed material, photographs.

The fund came to the Archives of Writers and Regional Culture in 2012 following a donation made by the Association "Archives and Documentation Center of Regional Culture" to the University of Trieste.

Scope and content

The fund preserves documentary material produced and collected by Oliviero Honoré Bianchi and relates to his very wide activity as a journalist and literary critic, Secretary of the Culture and Arts Circle as well as a writer.

Of particular interest are the collection of articles signed by Bianchi arranged by year - from 1927 to 1975 - the typescript of his only novel, "Night of the Devil," preserved in Folder 4 along with excerpts from the unpublished novel (manuscripts and typescripts), the epistolary, arranged alphabetically, from which we can see how many and what kind of relations there were between Bianchi and intellectuals and writers not only from Trieste.

The photographs return us with immediacy to the many events organized by Bianchi.
