Pitigrilli, pseudonym for Dino Segre, (9 May 1893 - May 8 1975) was an Italian writer and journalist. He was with Mario Mariano and Guido da Verona one of the auteurs maudits of pre-war Italy.

Cocaine (1921) is his most famous novel. The novel was banned when it was published. Most of his novels were controversial due to their liberal use of explicit sex and drugs.

Life

He was born in Turin.

He was romantically involved with Amalia Guglielminetti.

He made a living as a journalist and writer of novels.

In 1924 he founded the literary magazine Grandi Firme, which attracted a large readership of young literati. The magazine lasted until 1938, when the Fascist Government banned it, in accordance with the Race Laws.

From 1930 he started travelling around Europe, staying mainly in Paris, with brief periods in Italy. He returned to Italy in 1940, risking being interned (as a Jew), but fled with his family in 1943 to Switzerland, where he stayed until 1947.

In 1948 he went to Argentina where he remained for ten years. He then returned to Europe, staying mainly in Paris while visiting his house in Turin occasionally. He was in Turin when he died.
