Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Mario Carli (30 December 1888 - 9 September 1935) was an Italian poet, novelist, essayist, diplomat, and journalist. Carli was born in San Severo, Apulia, to Florentine father and Apulian mother. He spent his formative years in Florence, where he met Filippo Tommaso Marinetti in the 1910s, and adhered to Futurism as a member of the so-called pattuglia azzurra ("Azure platoon"). After fighting in World War I, he engaged in favor of the Arditi, and reached Gabriele D'Annunzio during the latter's political experiment in occupied Fiume in 1919. Carli then supported the militant anti-fascist Arditi del Popolo, created in 1920. A successful journalist, Carli adhered to Benito Mussolini's Fascist movement the moment it started; he and his friend Emilio Settimelli published the intimidating newspaper L'Impero. Nonetheless, he proved to be a dissident, and joined the field of those considered "left-wing fascists." In the 1930s, Carli was Italy's consul general in Porto Alegre, Brazil. Tormented by illness, he died prematurely in Rome.
