Italian writer, the author of one novel, "Passage in Shadow," which was published posthumously after her early death at 40. It was an immediate success, acclaimed by both critics and the public, and she was deemed capable of being a famous writer, had she lived.
Di Lascia had been a militant in the radical party in the early '80s and served as a deputy in Parliament during the 9th legislature. Devoted to human rights and ecology, she coordinated an anti-nuclear campaign and was the founder of a league for abolishing the death penalty.
Prior to her book, she had published short stories, one of which won the Millelire Prize.
