The Eight Mountains (Le otto montagne)


Whatever fate is, it dwells in the mountains, over our heads - for the protagonists of The Eight Mountains, this holds absolutely true. In the mountains, the parents of Pietro, one of the two main male heroes, fell in love with each other; in the mountains, Pietro became acquainted with Bruno, his best friend. Hiking in the mountains will become an educational method for Pietro's father, a solitary chemist, agonized in the rather bleak atmosphere of Milan, who is filled with rage at the whole world and with longing for mountain peaks. Similarly, Pietro's and Bruno's adult life will be firmly tied to the mountains.
