Biography
Arbasino was born in Voghera, southwestern Lombardy. He studied at the University of Milan where he graduated in law. Later he worked as journalist for magazines such as Il Mondo and the newspaper La Repubblica. From 1983 to 1987, he was deputy to the Italian Parliament for the Italian Republican Party.
His work include novels and essays. Arbasino has been a member of the Gruppo 63.
He describes himself as an expressionist writer and considers his novel Super Eliogabalo ("Super Elagabalus", 1969) as his most surreal and most expressionist book. He now edits and rewrites his various works, which are reprinted in updated versions.
In the 1970s he was the host of the TV debate show Match. In December 1977 it hosted a famous debate between directors Mario Monicelli and (the emerging) Nanni Moretti. Moretti said that Monicelli's An Average Little Man was a reactionary film.
In 2004 he won the Premio Chiara for his career.
Arbasino died on 23 March 2020, at the age of 90, after a long illness.
