ITALIAN DESCRIPTION:
Suor Teodora narra la storia di Agilulfo, cavaliere senza corpo, di cui vive solo l'armatura. Mentre Carlo Magno assedia Parigi, Agilulfo, dopo essersi coperto di gloria, decide di partire alla ricerca di Sofronia, fanciulla da lui salvata quindici anni prima. Accompagnato dallo scudiero Gurdulù, attraverso numerose peripezie, inseguito dalla guerriera Bradamante innamorata di lui, Agilulfo riesce a trovare Sofronia, ma credendola macchiata di gravi peccati, decide di scomparire. Si sveste dell'armatura e la consegna a Rambaldo, giovane compagno d'armi. Sarà ora questi a proseguire nella bianca corazza, le gesta del cavaliere senza corpo. Presentazione dell'autore

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION:
"The Nonexistent Knight" is an allegorical fantasy novel by Italian writer Italo Calvino, first published in Italian in 1959. The Nonexistent Knight is set in the time of Charlemagne, and draws material from the literary cycle known as the Matter of France, referencing Ariosto's Orlando Furioso. Agilulf is a righteous, perfectionist, faithful and pious knight who does not exist. Inside his empty armour is an echoing voice that reverberates through the metal. Nevertheless, he serves the army of a Christian king out of "goodwill and faith in the holy cause".
