The '' Roman stories '' by Alberto Moravia are rewarded at a tradition begun by the beautiful with him monumental work and then continued by Poets and Roman narrators such as Pascarella, Trilussa and others. Here too we find an anonymous character of the people or the small Roman bourgeoisie, who speaks in the first person, telling the cases of him and those of the people of him.
The language is no longer the strict Belliano or tempered dialect of Trilussa, but an Italian here and there colorful by words and Roman offices. The city and the people of Rome are naturally much changed from a century to this part: here the modern Rome is described and a bit of a stralunata of the first decade of the post-war period; a free rome and yet alienated; Multiple, vital and faced together, full of meetings, unexpected, adventures, but also of resignations and anguish.
A rich book, a great act of the human comedy of ours not far past.
