Buon Compleanno, Italo Calvino

I have been enjoying Calvino's works since I received his compendium of Italian Fables from my grandmother for my 7th birthday.  He turned 88 on October 14th - but I wouldn't have known that little piece of trivia if it weren't for Google Italia.  This was their amazing tribute, although admittedly, I thought it was Journey to the Center of the Earth.
You can find many more of these daily pieces of Italian trivia on my new Facebook Page...Just "Like" the Burnt Blog at the top of my page here, and you're good to go! 
Buona Lettura-
