Alessandro Manzoni

Portrait of Alessandro Manzoni,<br> by [[Francesco Hayez]]<br>([[Pinacoteca di Brera]], Milan, 1841) Alessandro Francesco Tommaso Antonio Manzoni (, , ; 7 March 1785 – 22 May 1873) was an Italian poet and novelist. He is famous for the novel ''The Betrothed'' (orig. ) (1827), generally ranked among the masterpieces of world literature. The novel is also a symbol of the Italian Risorgimento, both for its patriotic message and because it was a fundamental milestone in the development of the modern, unified Italian language. Manzoni also contributed to the stabilization of the modern Italian language and helped to insure linguistic unity throughout Italy. He was an influential proponent of Liberal Catholicism in Italy.
