ITALIAN DESCRIPTION:
La favola di Cenerentola comincia da qui. Quella tratta dal "Cunto de li cunti" (1634-36) è la più antica versione del tradizionale racconto di Cenerentola, che ha poi ispirato Perrault e i fratelli Grimm. La giovane Zezolla, figlia di un principe, viene indotta dalla propria istitutrice a uccidere la matrigna, che sempre si è mostrata crudele con lei. Quando il padre decide di prendere in moglie la maestra, Zezolla, scalzata dalle sei figlie di lei, finisce al lavoro nelle cucine, disprezzata e apostrofata come la "Gatta Cenerentola". Completano il volume tre delle più apprezzate fiabe del "Pentamerone": "La pulce", "La cerva fatata", "La vecchia scorticata".

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION:
"Zezolla, The Cat Cinderella:An Italian Fairytale": "In a few years, the date-tree had grown as tall as a woman, and out of it came a Fairy, who said to Zezolla, 'What do you wish for?'"... Before Perrault and the Brothers Grimm, Basile penned the first modern literary transcription of the Cinderella fairytale. It is the story of Zezolla, the daughter of an Italian Prince, who is betrayed by her governess and forced to live the life of a servant - that is until the King announces a feast. With assistance from a date tree given to her by the Fairies of Sardinia, Zezolla is able to attend the feast and her life is forever changed. The volume is completed by three of the most popular fairy tales of the "Pentamerone": "The Flea", "The Fairy Doe", "The Old Witch".
