Born in 1883 – the same year that ‘Thus Spoke Zarathustra’ was published and German composer, Richard Wagner, passed away –, journalist and diplomat, Augusto de Castro, would come across ‘delightful ironies’ in life, as he claimed later on. Thus, while Zarathustra belonged to one of Benito Mussolini’s favourite authors – an Italian dictator, also born in 1883, openly admired by Castro throughout the first decades of the 20th century –, the disappearance of Parsifal’s creator set the theme for one of the most nostalgic articles written by Augusto de Castro, which provided the title to his second-last work, ‘Eighty-three years ago in Venice’ (1966). This book suggests a journey through the life and works of Augusto de Castro, a larger-than-life character of 20th-century diplomacy, politics, and culture, who closely followed the main changes that took place in this country, and communed with the main political, economic, and cultural actors of the national and international scene of the time.
