Title & Author

Il libro che mi rappresenta: “Biondo era e bello”


Tobino declares that of all the books he has written, the one that most represents him is "Biondo era e bello - Blonde and Beautiful" (This is a clear reference to the personage of Manfredi in Dante's Inferno and Tobino has dedicated the same title to Dante himself in order to overturn the received image of Dante) He recites some verses of Dante( which display Dante's own greed for political infomation about his fellow Florentines) which kept him company whilst in Libya.
