J Very good point, Michael! Based on the responses I’ve received already, I’ve made an 053 request to LC to confirm the use of PQ5971.9.E72 for Milena Ercolani.
Have a great weekend everyone.
I think maybe Adam's dilemma is that if you take the schedule really literally, you might not put her in PQ5971.9 because San Marino is *inside* Italy, not outside of it.

I’ve got a literary author (Ercolani, Milena, 1963- ) from the Republic of San Marino and am having trouble deciding whether to class her in PQ4865 (Italian literature - Individual authors, 1961-2000) or in PQ5971.9 (Italian literature outside of Italy - Other European countries - Individual authors). San Marino is a tiny enclave surrounded by Italy, so it is a separate country, but its culture as I understand it is very much Italian. I’m not sure which option above is preferable. Suggestions/advice?
