How to Cite
This essay offers the reading of several Eleonora Duse’s unpublished works, written during a period of time between 1883 and 1921. In these writings a variously assorted network of correspondents (playwrighters, journalists, actors and antiquarians) meets. The autographs (most of them addressed to Achille Torelli) enrich the sources about the study of the actress. In each of them, the personal life of Eleonora Duse intersects with the theatrical profession until her biography merges with her, never satisfied, projects.
