Nota Alberto

Versione italiana       English version       Version française       Versión en español


Graduated in Law from the University of Turin, Alberto Nota (Turin, 1775-1847) was playwright, librarian and magistrate. While devoting himself to public career, he began to write early for the theater (interest he had cultivated since childhood), and became famous also and especially for this activity.
The archive contains correspondence and documents that span a period of time from 1810 to 1869, and that recount the political, social and cultural involvement of Alberto Nota in those years.
In this collection of documents, the wide correspondence held by Nota with some characters of the time certainly stands out. In particular, the countless letters addressed to his son Charles emerge, as well as some of his epistles to his father and other correspondents. A part of the collection, in fact, is dedicated to Carlo Nota.
The activity of playwright Alberto Nota is outlined within the archive with manuscripts and typewritten notes.
