Item Description: Milan: Casa Editrice I. R. A. G., 25 April 1927, 1927. Folio. Original red morocco, titles gilt to spine and front, gilt design to front board, moiré silk endpapers. Spine an corners a little worn, some faint spotting to the first and final blank, small tear to the lower margin of first blank, very good condition overall. 10 large photographic prints mounted on black card, and 16 smaller photographic images on 8 plates at the rear. True first edition, copy number 1 of 225 copies on handmade paper signed by Ruskaja, this copy specially bound and additionally inscribed on the first blank, "A Benito Mussolini, ommagio di devozione e di infinita ammirazione, Jia Ruskaja, 11 Julio 1927, Roma". La danza come un modo di essere was republished the following year by Casa Editrice Aples, in a larger, though still limited, edition of 1,500 copies. That edition is now uncommon, but the first is truly rare; we can find no example of the 1927 edition in library holdings worldwide, nor any recorded at auction. The red morocco binding here is likely to be unique to Mussolini's special presentation copy. Jia Ruskaja, born Evgenija Borisenko (1902–1970), whose stage name simply means "I am Russian", was the daughter of a White Russian officer. She fled Russia in 1918 just after the October Revolution. After studies in Geneva and a failed marriage to an Englishman in Constantinople, she settled in Rome and devoted herself to dance. She had her debut on 4 June 1921, and swiftly became a prominent proponent of the "free dance" movement introduced by Isadora Duncan, dancing at the Teatro degli Indipendenti throughout the 1920s before opening her own ballet school in Milan at the Teatre dal Verme in 1929. By 1932 she was promoted to the charge of the Teatro della Scala ballet school, and in 1940 her own school was recognised by the state as the Regia Scuola di Danza (from 1948 named the Academia Nazionale di Danza), for which she acted as founding director until her death. "There is little doubt that the frequent visits and the presence in Italy of companies and personalities such as Diaghilev's Ballets Russes, Isadora Duncan, Ida Rubinstein, Bella Hunter, Mary Wigman and Jia Ruskaja, channelled the interest of Italian theatre-goers away from such a culturally sterile form of national choreography. Some of those 'innovative' foreign inputs, moreover, were soon destined to become official manifestations of the Fascist regime's politically pre-determined culture. The allegedly negative effect of Fascist culture on the Italian ballet tradition is much debated among Italian dance scholars and has yet to be fully ascertained. Some claim that, by supporting other forms of dance such as the 'free' and neo-classically inspired style promoted by Jia Ruskaja, and by forcing eminent supporters of the ballet to move abroad, Mussolini's regime gave a deadly blow to what was left of the once-acclaimed art form. Others point out that it was under the Fascist regime that two important ballet institutions were created in Rome, such as the Opera Ballet School (1928) and the Regia Scola di Danza (Royal School of Dance) (1940)" (Grau). This is a compelling association copy for the history of dance in Italy, connecting one of its most modernising proponents to the head of state, and revealing the manner by which parts of futurist culture was promoted under Mussolini's fascist regime. Europe Dancing, Andree Grau (2000). Bookseller Inventory # 117929
