Domenico Starnone

Domenico Starnone (born 1943) is an Italian writer, screenwriter and journalist.

Born in Saviano, near Naples, he has worked for several newspapers and satirical magazines, including ''L'Unità'', ''Il Manifesto'', ''Tango'', and ''Cuore'', usually about episodes of his life as a high school teacher. He also works as screenwriter.

The movies ''La scuola'' (by Daniele Luchetti) and ''Denti'' (by Gabriele Salvatores) are based on his books.

One of his fictional books is ''Via Gemito'', which won the Premio Strega in 2001. It was suggested in 2006 that the mysterious writer Elena Ferrante, author of ''L'amore molesto'' and ''I giorni dell'abbandono'', is Starnone himself.

Starnone is married to Anita Raja, the literary translator who was said to be the author Elena Ferrante in a report by the Italian investigative journalist Claudio Gatti in 2016. Provided by Wikipedia
