About the Book

A classic of Italian literature, this epic and unforgettable novel recounts one man’s long and turbulent life in revolutionary Italy

At the age of eighty-three and nearing death, Carlo Altoviti has decided to write down the confessions of his long life. Throughout, Carlo has lived for his two great passions: his dream of a unified, free Italy and his undying love for the magnificent but inconstant Pisana. Peopled by a host of unforgettable characters, this epic historical novel intertwines the remarkable story of one man’s life and the history of Italy’s unification.
