Cuando tenía doce años, Cosimo Piovasco, barón de Rondó, en un gesto de rebelión contra la tiranía familiar, se encaramó a una encina del jardín de la casa paterna. Ese mismo día, el 15 de junio de 1767, encontró a la hija de los marqueses de Ondarivia y le anunció su propósito de no bajar nunca de los árboles. Desde entonces y hasta el final de su vida, Cosimo permanece fiel a una disciplina que él mismo se ha impuesto. La acción fantástica transcurre en las postrimerías del siglo XVIII y en los albores del XIX. Cosimo participa tanto en la revolución francesa como en las invasiones napoleónicas, pero sin abandonar nunca esa distancia necesaria que le permite estar dentro y fuera de las cosas al mismo tiempo. En esta espléndida obra, Calvino se enfrenta con el que, según él mismo declaró, es su verdadero tema narrativo: Una persona se fija voluntariamente una difícil regla y la sigue hasta sus últimas consecuencias, ya que sin ella no sería él mismo ni para sí ni para los otros

El vizconde demediado es la primera incursión de Italo Calvino en lo fabuloso y lo fantástico.

Símbolo de la condición humana dividida, medardo de Terralba sale a caminar por sus tierras. A su paso, las peras que colgaban de los árboles aparecen todas partidas por la mitad. Cada encuentro de dos seres en el mundo es un desgarrarse , le dice la mitad mala del vizconde a la mujer de quien se ha enamorado. Pero ¿es seguro que se trate de la mitad mala? Esta magnífica fábula plantea la búsqueda del ser humano en su totalidad, quien suele estar hecho de algo más que de la suma de sus mitades

3 editions published in 1998 in Spanish and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A Political Life is the compelling autobiography of Norberto Bobbio, one of the foremost political thinkers in postwar Italy. Bobbio guides us through some of the most significant events of the twentieth century, charting their influence on his life and work." "Born in 1909, Norberto Bobbio's early life was marked by the experience of growing up in Mussolini's Italy - an experience that helped to shape his passionate commitment to the anti-fascist cause. As a result of these early experiences, Bobbio has tirelessly emphasized the fundamental, unassailable importance of democratic rights in the modern state. He has been a voice of reason and moderation in a poltical context where democratic values have often been threatened by extremes."
