ITALIAN DESCRIPTION:
E passato più di un secolo da quando, nel 1886, Cuore venne pubblicato per la prima volta e rese De Amicis lo scrittore più letto d'Italia. Eppure, ancora oggi questo libro ci colpisce non solo per la straordinaria, ineguagliata fortuna che l'ha accompagnato lungo tutta la sua storia, ma anche per i suoi pregi letterari: per la scrittura, per la sapienza di una sceneggiatura completa, per la capacità di concludere un episodio con una singola, magistrale frase. Lo stesso intento pedagogico e l'impegno civile che lo permeano sono la dimostrazione di una tensione morale capace di renderlo emozionante e commovente anche per il lettore contemporaneo - e per lo spettatore: come dimostrano i molti film e sceneggiati che sono stati tratti dal libreo 'Cuore'. In appendice il saggio 'Elogio Di Franti" di Umberto Eco.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION:
"Heart: An Italian School Boy Journal" was a children’s novel written by Italian author Edmondo De Amicis. It is set during the Italian unification, and includes several patriotic themes. The novel is written in a diary form as told by Enrico Bottini, a 10-year old primary school student in Italy with an upper class background who is surrounded by classmates of working class origin. The entire chronological setting corresponds to the third-grade season. Enrico’s parents and older siblings sometimes correspond with Enrico through the means of his diary: his teacher assigns him with homework dealing with stories of children throughout the Italian states, who should serve as role models – the stories are then given in full as Enrico is supposed to have written them. Most topics revolve around moral values, and the predilect ones include helping those in need, love for family and friends, and patriotism. In the appendix the literary essay 'Elogio Di Franti' by Umberto Eco.
