Vittoria Aganoor

Vittoria Aganoor

Vittoria Aganoor (Padova,1855-Perugia, 1910) was an Italian poet with Armenian ancestry.

She was the 7th child of Edoardo Aganoor and Giuseppina Pacini, lots of Italian celebrities, such as Andrea Maffei or Antonio Fogazzaro, visited their home when she was a child.

In 1876 she went living to Naples, where she met Enrico Nencioni, who helped her with her poetry, although she wrote letters more often to Domenico Gnoli.

She was very emotionally dependent to her family because of her depressive temper and although she was a precocious writer, she published her first book in 1900, "Leggenda eterna".

In 1901, she married to Guido Pompilj and went to Perugia.

She died from cancer on 9 April 1910. Thanks to her husband, she became very famous after her death.
