Representing the "Huckleberry Finn" of Italy, this is the most read classic in the country. Presented in the form of a diary, its subject is a young boy's life in Turin following Unification in 1870. The narrator, Enrico, writes vividly of school life and the bustling city of vegetable-sellers, chimney sweeps, and carpenters all around him. Like Huck Finn or Dickens, Cuore has been adapted into just about every conceivable medium--films, major television series, radio adaptations, plays, and even comic books.
