Upon his death on October 6, 1959, Bernard Berenson left to Nicky Mariano the vast collection of correspondence which he had accumulated during the nearly sixty years of his residence at Villa I Tatti. On the centennial of Berenson’s birth, The Harvard University Center for Italian Renaissance Studies, now established at I Tatti, arranged to publish this inventory of the correspondence in order to make available to interested scholars a knowledge of its contents. The inventory is divided into two parts: all correspondents are listed, with cross references, in Part One; letters written by Bernard or Mary Berenson, or by Nicky Mariano, are listed in Part Two by recipient.

Who We Might Have Been, and Who We Will Become

Who among us hasn’t considered what our lives would be like if we had taken alternate paths, made different decisions? Storytellers of every stripe write of the lives we didn’t have, says Andrew H. Miller, author of On Not Being Someone Else: Tales of Our Unled Lives. As we live through a worldwide pandemic, the ideas of what might have been are even more appealing. Much like the adolescents on the verge of adulthood in Sally Rooney’s novel Normal People, Miller tells us, we wait to see what comes next.
