Description

An original Italian easy reader by Francesca Colombo

Anselmo, once known as Rome’s go-to man for unsolvable probems (see the two previous volumes in this trilogy: Anselmo e l’omicidio di Giovanni Borgia and Anselmo e la moglie spagnola), has made a new life with his twin brother Paolo in Belgium, far to the north of the intrigues and dangers of the Papal court.

Life is good and both Anselmo and Paolo are successful men. But they can’t help following the news and gossip from Rome: Cesare Borgia has had notable military success at the head of the French armies so it now seems that his father, Pope Alessandro VI, is in an unassailable position of power and wealth.

Then one day a letter arrives: Cesare’s syphilis has reoccurred and he once more needs Anselmo’s help.

Paolo, Anselmo’s identical twin, is concerned. But then an idea occurs – accompanying his brother to Rome would be an unmissable chance to see court life at first hand!

(Volume 1 of the Anselmo trilogy is ‘Anselmo e l’omicidio di Giovanni Borgia‘, volume 2 is Anselmo e la moglie spagnola). This is Volume 3.)

    Anselmo e l’omicidio di Giovanni Borgia’, ‘Anselmo e la moglie spagnola’ & ‘Anselmo e l’avvelenamento del Papà’
    Definitely, these are worth having in a learning Italian reading/listening library. After reading the text with and without narration at least three times, I thought I understood most of the dense historical vocabulary and details in the complex storyline…but with each re-reading new phrases and expressions pop up! The glossaries, in Italian, were a learning experience in themselves, because unlike definitions in English, I needed to research two unfamiliar parts. The ‘Anselmo’ trilogy wants intense concentration. No dishwashing or opening cans of cat food while listening!

    Because I wanted a contrast to the laborious ‘Anselmo’ experience, I re-read another C2 Easy Reader, ‘La Via Francigena’. It was also challenging, but to me, the contemporary trekking/pilgrimage story was approachable, friendly. I loved googling places mentioned in the narrative; that opened the story to possibilities for exploring Italy. The trilogy was harder work & a different type of story, of course.
    I would lobby for getting all four! The listening and reading combination is a great learning Italian resource.
