Does just what it says on the tin: a collection of folktales from Italy. Fun, if you like that sort of thing (and I do). ( )

This was a book my grandfather had and would read to me when I was younger. All of the folktales in this book are great but I especially enjoyed "The Three Castles." ( )

"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.
