Informations and abstract

Keywords: Germano Lombardi; Barcelona; Lombardi's Archive; Neo-Avantgarde.

The genesis of Germano Lombardi's first novel "Barcelona" (1963) was complex as documented by a large number of drafts held in the author's Archive (Centro Manoscritti, Pavia). This essay focuses on the experimental techniques used by the author (flashbacks and omissions in a spy story without events) by illustrating the textual history of the novel and its structural evolution from the superabundant preparatory materials to the final version.
