ITALIAN DESCRIPTION:

Pubblicato nell'aprile del 1950 e considerato il libro più bello di Pavese, "La Luna E I Falò" è il suo ultimo romanzo. Il protagonista, Anguilla, all'indomani della Liberazione, torna al suo paese delle Langhe dopo molti anni trascorsi in America e, in compagnia dell'amico Nuto, ripercorre i luoghi dell'infanzia e dell'adolescenza in un viaggio nel tempo, alla ricerca di antiche e sofferte radici. Storia semplice e lirica insieme, costruita come un continuo viavai tra il piano del passato e quello del presente, La luna e i falò recupera i temi civili della guerra partigiana, la cospirazione antifascista, la lotta di Liberazione, e li lega a problematiche private – l'amicizia, la sensualità, la morte -, in un intreccio drammatico che conferma la totale inappartenenza dell'individuo rispetto al mondo e il suo triste destino di solitudine.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION:
"The Moon And The Bonfires": Published in April 1950 and considered Pavese's most beautiful book, "The Moon And The Bonfires" is his latest novel. The protagonist, Anguilla, in the aftermath of the Liberation, returns to his village in the Langhe (Piedmont) after many years spent in America and, in the company of his friend Nuto, retraces the places of childhood and adolescence on a journey through time, in search of ancient and suffered roots. A simple and lyrical story at the same time, built as a continuous coming and going between the plan of the past and that of the present, "The Moon And The Bonfires" recovers the civil themes of the partisan war, the anti-fascist conspiracy, the liberation struggle, and links them to private problems - friendship, sensuality, death -, in a dramatic intertwining that confirms the total non-belonging of the individual to the world and his sad destiny of solitude.
