Scope and content

The fund preserves documentary material produced and collected by Giani Stuparich and his wife Elody Oblath Stuparich. The copious documentation refers not only to Stuparich's literary production but also to his private and public life.

The fund contains the manuscripts and typescripts of his numerous short stories and novels - in particular for "Ritorneranno" there are multiple handwritten and typescript versions of the text - family correspondence - very significant is the group of letters and postcards from his brother Carlo, with whom he had a very strong bond - correspondence relating to his public offices, - he was a founding member and president of the Trieste Culture and Arts Circle - articles written for local and national newspapers.

The fonds also contains documentation relating to his tenure as a teacher at the Liceo: of particular note is the questionnaire distributed to students, with an original and far-sighted sensitivity, concerning their motivations and expectations regarding the classical studies they undertook.

From the reading of the papers of the Stuparich Fund, which dialogues with the Oblath Fund, we get to know not only the figure of the writer and his literary career but also that of the intellectual committed to the promotion of culture and civic values.
