SCARFOGLIO, EDOARDO (1860-1917), Italian journalist, was born at Paganico (Aguila) in 1860, and died at Naples Oct. 6 1917. He was one of the most vigorous and ablest journalists of his time and an excellent newspaper manager as well as editor. He founded the Corriere di Roma, the Corriere di Napoli, the Ora of Palermo and the Maltino of Naples. It is with the latter paper, which he owned and edited for many years, that his name is chiefly associated. He was the husband of the novelist Matilde Serao (see 24.661), from whom, however, he had been separated for many years.
