DescriptionsEdit Descriptions

Il Commisario Montalbano è un personaggio letterario creato da Andrea Camilleri. Montalbano è un commissario di polizia che svolge le sue funzioni nell'immaginaria cittadina di Vigata, sulla costa siciliana. I racconti di Camilleri sono caratterizzati dall'uso di un italiano fortemente contaminato da elementi della lingua siciliana e da un'ambientazione particolarmente curata. Il nome del protagonista, Montalbano, venne scelto da Camilleri in omaggio allo scrittore spagnolo Manuel Vázquez Montalbán, ideatore di un altro detective famoso, Pepe Carvalho: i due personaggi hanno in comune l'amore per la buona cucina e le buone letture, i modi piuttosto sbrigativi e non convenzionali nel risolvere i casi e una storia d'amore controversa e complicata con donne anch'esse complicate.
