"Le fiabe sono vere. Sono il catalogo dei destini che possono darsi a un uomo e a una donna, soprattutto per la parte di vita che è appunto il farsi di un destino". A metà degli anni '50 Calvino raccoglie e riscrive completamente le più belle fiabe di tutte le regioni italiane, preservando così la tradizione orale.

I can't claim I've read every story in this book. Italian folktales are quite earthy and this is a great addition to any storyteller's or folklore enthusiast's collection. ( )

l'intento del libro è eccezionale ma la fruibilità molto meno, nonostante calvino. ( )
