A second note from Massimo Bacigalupo, this one more detailed than the first 
and specifically intended for posting to the EP List. wp

On CasaPound and Mary dR

On April 1st, 2010, Corriere della Sera published an interview ("Gi. le mani da
mio padre Ezra Pound") in which Mary de Rachewiltz denounced the use of EP's
name by CasaPound, a prominent neo-fascist group based in Rome and 
elsewhere, infamous for beating up student protesters and disrupting tv talk-
shows. She said that using Pound in this way was "worse than putting him in the 
Pisa cage".

Predicatably, the CasPound people responded claiming to be true interpreters of
Pound's thought, and inviting Mary to come and visit their establishment and
see for herself. Corriere della Sera published this response in the form of an
article on April 14 ("Fascista o ingenuo, il rebus Pound"), disingenously
pretending to be impartial.

It is very courageous of Mary to speak up about the misappropriation of EP's
name by neo-fascist thugs, and she rightly pointed out that this job should be
undertaken by scholars.

> Dear Tim:  I had the same trouble trying to get the website, and I even called 
up the Corriere on the Internet to see if I could find what Luca had in mind.  I 
didn't find it.  Let me know if you do.
>I've read your essay on Pound's Catholicism and found it quite enlightening.  
It's too early to say what will be in the book that Caterina Ricciardi and I have 
begun putting together, but I can tell you in advance I'm glad your essay is in 
our file.  I think we are going to get a good book out of the Rome conference 
eventually.  Just be patient.
