Niccolò Tucci

Niccolò Tucci (May 1, 1908 - December 10, 1999) was a short story writer and novelist who wrote in English and Italian.

Born in Lugano, Switzerland of a Russian mother and an Italian father who became a Swiss citizen, Niccolò Tucci grew up in privileged circumstances that were eliminated by the Bolshevik Revolution. His family relocated to Tuscany. In 1938, he resigned a position with Mussolini's Press Ministry and immigrated to the United States. He wrote numerous short stories and a few longer works, many of which are largely autobiographical in their subject matter.

His daughter, Maria Tucci, is an actress married to her father's former editor, Robert Gottlieb.
