Historic Lawrence plaque goes missing in Italy

A PLAQUE commemorating where the writer once lived in Italy has gone missing this week.

The plaque on the wall outside the house where Lawrence wrote some of his most famous works has vanished, leaving Lawrence enthusiasts baffled.

Dave Brock a member of the Lawrence Society said: “He moved there in 1920 and wrote some very important works there. It’s important it’s found.”

- The next meeting of the DH Lawrence Society will be at Durban House on Wednesday, May 9.

There will be a talk by Maria Thanassa entitled ‘Lawrence and the Greeks’ which will start at 7pm.
