Photographer's Note

'"I have what I have given" of the numerous sayings of D'Annunzio, this was among his favorites, so as to place it at the entrance of the villa Cargnacco [see. the picture], which he renamed "Italian's Vittoriale", became over the years when he lived there (1921 to 1938, the year of his death) a real town, with a vast park.

He explained the motto saying that everything he had in life came from his literary work, the proceeds of which were always his only resource, for better or for worse: therefore all that he felt economically, was the result of this that he had previously "donated" artistically.

In addition, by signing the deed of purchase, he made a donation official Vittoriale and everything contained therein (including approximately 33000 volumes owned by the Poet) "to the nation and to the Italian people", stating that his death everything would be become state-owned, and used as a public museum: so - twice - the Vittoriale, while still possessed D'Annunzio, had been virtually given to others, in this case, simply reverse the motto understand perfectly: "I have given what I have. "

Regardless ones political ideas this villa is worth a visit in particular the many rooms inside the house where unfortunately is not allowed to take picture.
