This paper is an historical and cultural analysis of the work of Gabriele D'Annunzio. He was one of the leading intellectual practitioners of the aestheticisation of politics. His texts are tied to a national discourse which is consciously and unconsciously imperial. In his narratives the political map of the nation is overlaid with a tissue of imperial and sexual symbols. He examines how the geographic signs of empire are inscribed in Il Piacere and in Cabiria
