Pietro Corsi
Pietro Corsi (1937-2017) was born in the region of Molise (Italy). In the mid-50s he moved to Rome, where he worked as a translator while co-creating radio programs for RAI, the official Italian radio organization. He was visiting Canada in 1959, when he was offered a job by the Italian weekly newspaper Il Cittadino Canadese. During that time, he wrote his first work of fiction (La Giobba, in English Winter in Montreal, Guernica, the G.B. Bressani Prize of 2002). He later changed venue, effectively pioneering Italian service standards in the cruise industry. Promoted to Operating Manager for Princess Cruises, of Love Boat fame, he established residence in California in 1969. In 1992, he retired to resume his writing career. He authored books ranging from fiction to essays, cookbooks and training manuals for the cruise industry. Published works include Halifax: The Other Door to America and The light of the soul: Neruda, the white raven, the black cat (both with Guernica).
