In 1922 Ezra Pound went to Rimini, Italy, in order to study the story of Malatestas. He carried out precise research about Sigismondo Pandolfo Malatesta and his attempt to create an independent Seignory all over Central Italy in the XV century A.D., forerunning Cesare Borgia's projects. At last, Pound wrote his four Malatesta Cantos (VIII-XI). In 1944, when Rimini was bombed, he expressed his deepest sympathy for that martyr town. Some of these data have been analysed by a recent critical edition of Pound's Draft of XXX Cantos, published by Prof. Bacigalupo.
