Summary/Abstract: In the period of 1949-1950, which coincides with the stay of Alba de Cespedes in Washington D.C (USA), the novel Dalla parte di lei – following its immediate publication – draws full attention of literary criticism, which is evident from, among other things, over twenty reviews dedicated to it. Dailies and magazines of the time featured reviews by some of the most prominent figures of the then cultural circles – critics and writers – who commended and supported the novel wholeheartedly, with only a few of them resenting the author’s choice of topics. This paper focuses on Ana Garofalo’s interpretation of the novel, an intellectual and a journalist and a loyal friend of Alba de Cespedes’. Her review, entitled Dalla parte di lei. Storia di tutte le donne, published in the Gazzetta del Mezzogiorno daily newspaper on 9 Sep 1949, was the first of a series of texts dedicated to this novelistic achievement of the aforementioned Italian writer.
