Maurizio Raffaelli was born in 1954. He lives in Florence and he is an architect. In 2004, he published “Malignosamente” with Il Ponte Editore. This novel includes some poems he wrote when he was young – poems that Gianfranco Contini (a famous literary critic) appreciated so much that he presented them in the radio broadcast “L’approdo Letterario” hosted by Carlo Betocchi.
As a freelance, he has written cultural articles for many newspapers and magazines such as La Repubblica, Il Tirreno, AAMTerra Nuova, Avvenimenti.
His production also includes texts he wrote for documentary films co-produced by RAI and directed by Massimo Luconi.
