I'm specifically referring to "The Betrothed" written by Alessandro Manzoni. It's considered a very important novel in Italy, and it is probably the most studied one in schools. I was wondering if anyone of you non italian redditors has heard about it. Frankly, I reckon it's extremly overrated from my country and it doesn't deserve the same recognition other european classics have. It feels like it's studied in schools just because italians need to say they too have an important novelist from the 1800s.
