The class will read and discuss (in Italian) Mio Fratello Rincorre i Dinosauri, a different kind of coming of age novel. The protagonist, Giacomo, writes it at the age of 19 after growing up with a disabled younger brother. It’s a story about what is important in life and the choices that we make. Of course, there are uniquely Italian twists on this theme.
