Penguin | 1970 | ISBN: 0140017976 | 160 pages | EPUB | 3 MB
In the tiny Po River Valley in an obscure village in Italy a good-hearted village Priest, Don Camillo, struggles to tend his flock and with his personal Italian-temper. Don Camillo's buttons are often pushed by his arch-rival the Village Mayor, an avowed leader of the Communist Party, who is also struggling to do his best to tend to the villagers and maintain his own Italian temper. Set in postwar Italy, the men are artful and worthy adversaries who often & hysterically get the best of each other by turns, and occasionally ignore their differences so they can work together to do their best for their community. If you have any Italian blood in you, or you have loved anyone or anything Italian, you will find this a joy. And, it is a series!
