Italian Short Stories / Raconti Italiani, by several authors

Some very good short stories in here; I liked particularly the very sad one by Pasolini and the one by Alberto Moravia, and of course one of Calvino's Cosmicomics. Being a bilingual edition, I tried to read the original texts, some are easier than others, but even with my rudimentary Italian I was able to enjoy the musicality of the language, and felt sorry for not being more fluent. Even so, there were two - by Elio Vittorini and Moravia - that I actually could read without having to look at the English translation. It's really a beautiful language.
