Italian poet, journalist, novelist and dramatist. He is a controversial figure due to his influence on the Italian Fascist movement and his strong influence on the ideology of Benito Mussolini; although he never became directly involved in fascist government politics in Italy.
In his honour, the Chilean poet Lucila Godoy Alcayaga took the first name of her pseudonym, Gabriela Mistral.
