You have been studying Italian for some time and are quite comfortable carrying on conversations on a large variety of topics but perhaps you are ready for something a bit more challenging to continue to improve your vocabulary and solidify your knowledge of Italian grammar – not to mention insight into Italian culture.
Reading a book has not yet been part of your toolbox as both the task itself – not understanding everything, having to look up too many words — seems a bit daunting and the actual selection of a book, a discouraging process! But if someone chooses the book for you and holds your hand throughout the process by allowing you to tackle it in small digestible bites that you get to discuss once a week… you may be in for a pleasant and highly rewarding experience that will contribute to boost your confidence!
If you are ready to move into the realm of unabridged literature, let the adventure begin!

You will be asked to read a certain number of pages every week at home and once a week, you will “videomeet” with your classmates and instructor for discussions, clarifications, explanations, etc. — in Italian of course!

If you know that this is the right level for you, please sign up! If you are not sure, let us help: please get in touch by email.

Riassunto del libro

1944, Bologna sta vivendo il suo «inverno più nero». La città è occupata, stretta nella morsa del freddo, ferita dai bombardamenti. Ai continui episodi di guerriglia partigiana le Brigate Nere rispondono con tale ferocia da mettere in difficoltà lo stesso comando germanico. Anche per De Luca, ormai inquadrato nella polizia politica di Salò, quei mesi maledetti sono un progressivo sprofondare all’inferno. Poi succede una cosa. Nella Sperrzone, il centro di Bologna sorvegliato dai soldati della Feldgendarmerie, pieno di sfollati, con i portici che risuonano dei versi degli animali ammassati dalle campagne, vengono ritrovati tre cadaveri. Tre omicidi su cui il commissario è costretto a indagare per conto di tre committenti diversi e con interessi contrastanti. Convinti che solo lui possa aiutarli.
