This research project comprises the investigation of Carta del Carnaro, written by Gabriele D'Annunzio and Alceste De Ambris, with the objective of analyzing the utopian, literary and modernist aspects of the fiuman constitution. Promulgated in 1920, during the military occupation of the city of Fiume, the Carta del Carnaro is the fundamental law of the new Italian state. Written in a poetic form never used before, this document is considered as the most curious literary exercise to build an imaginary state. The aim of this study is to evaluate how the historical events experienced by the generation that lived during the Great War served as a background so that we can understand the direction of the Italian vanguard and how the aesthetic formalization of their ideals transformed Italy of the early 20th Century into a political laboratory. This research aims to conduct a commented translation of the Carta del Carnaro, still unpublished in Portuguese, conducting a study that seeks to discuss utopian dimension of this document and evaluate the effect that this had on ideological training of fascism on the construction of the Free State of Fiume.
