One of the rare -- Catholic! -- authors thinking that Satan can still
be saved was the Italian Futurist writer and essayist Giovanni Papini
(1881-1956):

. . .  one of Papini's last works, the puzzling "Il diavolo" [The
Devil], is among the most interesting books on the subject, along with
Origen's and Milton's. Even more clearly than Origen, he stated that
Satan is already in time to be redeemed.

This is just the paragraph making reference to Milton, who wasn't in
the same line but is here mentioned since he belongs to the list of
authors who renewed and restyled Satan as a character. Papini's "Il
diavolo" was first published in 1953. For the context and more details
