The Betrothed

Cod.: STR0019

The Betrothed is one of the Strenna editions that Olivetti began producing in 1972 as Christmas gifts: a series of celebrated literary masterpieces, illustrated using specially commissioned drawings by contemporary artists.
The most famous novel in Italian literature, a masterpiece by Alessandro Manzoni. A historical novel, combining real and fictional elements, a story like so many others that slowly transforms into one of the most evocative epochal frescoes of all time, also for its ability to represent the human condition in all its nuances, from the awareness of pain and evil to the bet on faith, to the inevitable and dramatic confrontation with history.
The illustrations are taken from the 1840 edition of the book.
