the 50s and early 60s, a decade in which truth and lies became so entangled that we still cannot clearly discern between naivety and hypocrisy Italians wanted to believe but just didn t care about what, when, where and least of all why they were willing to believe in the unreal as such ready to worship any chimera they would never be called to face for real Tales that s what they wanted to hear Calvino s novels are indeed tales for grown ups tales depicting a world that is not what it seems, in which a sense of unease is always hovering over the cheapest Dreamland in recent history the so called Italian miracle, and the darkness it was supposed to hide The Baron in the Trees can be read on two different levels as the weird story of a weird kid pure narrative as well as an allegory, the author s peculiar genre The plot is quite simple out of sheer despise for his family, Cosimo, the teenage son of a Western Ligurian nobleman Liguria is the region of Genoa leaves the house, climbs a tree and decides never to get back he will spend his whole life in the trees, moving from one bough to another never again will he obey his father and set foot on the ground From the very beginning, the protagonist sees the world from an entirely new perspective He meets any sort of people, from the workers camped out in the forest to the young heiress of a rival family they obviously fall in love with each other , but also a bibliophile brigand, a band of teenage thieves roaming the countryside, philosophers, statesmen thus the boy finds a new identity, without ever regretting the comfort of his previous existence.Then history takes its toll with the French Revolution and the coming of Napoleon s army Cosimo takes part in all this turmoil, although in his own way in his beloved trees, that is The first person narrator of his deeds is his younger brother, gathering his own memories and other people s witnesses in order to tell Cosimo s amazing story No doubt a twelve year old reader s attention won t focus on the subtlety of such imagery he will enjoy the tale and the beautiful writing style, so enchanting in the original but quite easy to render in other languages As a grown up reader though, one can hardly ignore the depth of Calvino s humour from the first pages on, the author s intent is to praise the rebellious, innocent spirit of those who just don t fit in the traditional and decaying society of any time and place, and make fun of any diktat and hypocrisy Cosimo s grotesque relatives, the outcasts living like pariahs in the village outskirts, the brigand turned bookworm and hanged, the ridiculous pretentiousness of the Italian aristocracy cowardly vassals plotting against each other for a crumble of land this is what the kid escapes by dwelling in the trees, as though leaving their friendly foliage would stain his innocence with the evil he s left behind In fact the forest is not merely a setting the trees are a bridge between the solid ground of our daily life and the sky, a no man s land in which Cosimo becomes a bon sauvage looking down at the meanness of his fellow countrymen The author s message is not only moral, but also ecological, quite ahead of histime.However, when history breaks through the idleness of his country, Cosimo has the chance to show what he s worth in the final chapters the tale shifts to a totally different plane, a wider dimension in which historical events and literary references get entangled with the life of the Baron in the Trees, now turned into a weird, funny Don Quixote It s the most serious part of the book, the one in which the author s viewpoint is most evident Politics never prevail over the storytelling, though Calvino is too clever to make such a mistake He deals with the magic of words, not slogans he s not pro , he s para Para dox Yes, paradox What else can you expect from a leftist whose name was among the faves during the fascist regime along with Benito for obvious reasons , Vittorio Mussolini s son 1 , Bruno Mussolini s son 2 , Romano Mussolini s son 3 , Rachele Mussolini s wife, the real Duce actually and so on For all these reasons, this book can be read by a kid as well as by an adult and appreciated by both Il barone rampante The Baron in the Trees, Italo CalvinoThe Baron in the Trees Italian Il barone rampante is a 1957 novel by Italian writer Italo Calvino

little squib is barely a log line I read this book first in 1974, because it had a cool looking jacket It also had an Italian author, which was also cool But the reading of it was a revelation because the titular Baron was the perfect rebel, firm of purpose and adamant of spirit And all over what seems, at first anyway, such a ridiculous cause Refusing to eat snails I d never had snails offered to me at that point, and I was in full agreement with the Baron But as the pages flipped on, I could see what was really at stake was the right to set one s own boundaries, to establish a core identity by and for one s own self.All adolescents resonate to that theme, I think, and that s why I m surprised that this book isn t required reading until college It would serve well in junior or senior year of high school Anything that deals with the process and price of becoming and being an individual seems to me to be a good fit for that age Plus it s beautifully translated, so it s easy to read.And for the record, I ate snails the first time they were offered to me They were delicious A fantasy farce by the master Set in Italy around the time of Napoleon, a young man, discouraged by his boring relationship with his two crazy parents, crazy sister, friar tutor and crazy uncle who lives with them, takes to the trees of the surrounding forest at age twelve and never touches the ground again, dying at age 65 Like an overly long joke, I wondered how long Calvino could pull off this story and keep it interesting, but he does it successfully forthan 200 pages.The Barn s li A fantasy farce by the master Set in Italy around the time of Napoleon, a young man, discouraged by his boring relationship with his two crazy parents, crazy sister, friar tutor and crazy uncle who lives with them, takes to the trees of the surrounding forest at age twelve and never touches the ground again, dying at age 65 Like an overly long joke, I wondered how long Calvino could pull off this story and keep it interesting, but he does it successfully forthan 200 pages.The Barn s lifelong story is told mostly by his younger brother who sees him daily and supplies him with essentials, although the brother in the trees gathers wild food and shoots animals Their father, the older Baron, is obsessed by his social pretentions Their mother, German by birth, is equally obsessed with military operations, maps and battles and seems not to mind her son s bizarre behavior, taking it as a kind of military scouting campaign They call her the Generalessa The forest is extensive and he lowers baskets to buy books from the local bookstore in town at the edge of the forest When still young, his tutor comes to sit up in the trees with him He courts young women and falls in love with one He battles bandits and pirates, meets up with soldiers including Napoleon , and makes friends with the marginal folks who live in the forest including homeless coal miners, fruit pickers and poachers He even sets up a press and prints a newspaper for a time The locals defer to him as the Young Baron He acquires a reputation beyond Italy as the man who lives in the trees and corresponds with folks like Voltaire, receiving back brief, polite letters Not my favorite Calvino, but a decent read The Baron in the Trees, painting by Italian artist Salvatore Nangione from artrabbit.comThe author from ilglobo.com
