On our recent vacation I had a chance to read the whole trilogy. I was amazed by the depth of character development Salsini shows in his characters. On the one hand, they maintain some of the same characteristics throughout the trilogy. Paul must have developed a biographical chronology of each of them at least in his head, if not on paper. On the other hand, they show growth and maturity. This is most clearly demonstrated in Dino who goes from an embryo in the first volume to a maturing artist in this third volume. Having met Paul and Bella his cat, it was interesting to see that a cat named Bella even made it into this volume. I'd recommend the whole trilogy to anyone interested in good character development.

Format: Paperback
The concluding volume to Wisconsin author Paul Salsini's superb Tuscan trilogy, "Dino's Story: A Novel of 1960s Tuscany" continues to present fascinating and engaging perspectives on 20th Century Florence through his carefully detailed characters and attention riveting story lines. Now focusing on a generation just being born in his first novel of this series, the setting is the turbulent 60s where changes are rapidly transforming the city's culture, and the city itself is devastatingly impacted by a ruinous flood. The central character is Dino Sporenza, a young man newly arrived in Florence to study art, and finds himself caught up in studying the lives of an impoverished citizenry as well. In "Dino's Story", with its memorable cast of characters, Paul Salsini continues to document himself as a gifted and imaginative storyteller of the first order. Readers appreciating well-crafted fiction, and Wisconsin's community libraries, will want to read all three titles in this simply outstanding series: "The Cielo: A Novel of Wartime Tuscany"; "Sparrow's Revenge: A Novel of Postwar Tuscany"; and now "Dino's Story: A Novel of 1960s Tuscany".

This book is like a beautiful painting of Florence and of Italy. I've never been there but now I want to go! I'll be buying more Paul Salsini books.
