Roberto Calasso (born 1941 in Florence) is an Italian publisher and writer. He studied English Literature at the University of Rome and graduated with a thesis on "The hieroglyphs of Sir Thomas Browne" supervised by Mario Praz. He has been working for Adelphi Edizioni since its founding in 1962 and became its Chairman in 1999. His books have from 1990 been translated into most European languages. After a successful career in publishing he has become a leading intellectual.Fact|date=July 2007
