Abstract

Salgari wasn’t appreciated a lot until half the 20th Century, but today literary criticism recognizes Salgari’s fiction, which interprets the needs of the new nation after unification. Sandokan is the main character of one of Salgari’s most important novels; he represents a return to the myth of the origins, according to the latest Garibaldi’s model, betweeen the development of Italian industry and troubles of the South, in a broader and broader world. Salgarian hero dialogues with Mr Average, in a visionary realism, between cupio dissolvi and a furious vital force. Salgarian fiction translates a new model of human condition with a rebirth of the myth.
