- Ezra Pound, Jefferson and/or Mussolini: l'idea statale, fascism as I have seen it, London, Stanley Nott, 1935.
«My hotel-keeper [in Rimini] was also Comandante della Piazza, we had got better acquainted by reason of his sense of responsibility, or his interest in what I was doing. The local librarian had shut up the library, and the Comandante had damn well decided that if I had taken the trouble to come to Romagna to look at a manuscript, the library would cut the red tape.»
(Ezra Pound, Jefferson and/or Mussolini, p. 26-27. L'episodio a cui Pound si riferisce avvenne nel 1923, quando la Biblioteca Gambalunga era diretta da Aldo Francesco Massera).
