Literary synopsis

Rogomelec is a romanticised autobiography, where Leonor Fini takes the form of a cat to tell her own story. Leonor Fini begun writing in 1968 in Nonza inspired by the nature of the Corsican coast and the abandoned monastery in which spended her summers. In this text we saw her great interest in the animal world, particularly in the cat figure: the protagonist was precisely half man, half cat. A story with a strong surrealistic character as is most of her paintings.
