Il giardino dei Finzi-Contini

£15.99

Product description

D'un angolo della società italiana. Une ragazza dell'alta borghesia, tre giovani di varia condizio. Ne, una folla di personaggi minori, un ambiente, un'epoca. Bassani ci dà una rappresentazione così completa - dramma interiore e costume, cultura e linguaggio - da render vivo il senso di quanto ha contato il lavoror dell'ultima narrativa italiana.

This is a haunting, elegiac novel which captures the mood and atmosphere of Italy (and in particular Ferrara) in the last summers of the thirties, focusing on an aristocratic Jewish family moving imperceptibly towards its doom. Vittorio De Sica turned the book into a film in 1970, winning the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film in 1974.

In Italian.
