The Garden of the Finzi-Continis, Paperback / softback Book

The Garden of the Finzi-Continis Paperback / softback

Part of the Penguin Modern Classics series


This is a haunting, elegiac novel which captures the mood and atmosphere of Italy (and in particular Ferrara) in the last summers of the thirties, focusing on an aristocratic Jewish family moving imperceptibly towards its doom.

Vittorio De Sica turned the book into a film in 1970, winning the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film in 1974.
