A very bizarre, short novel from Calvino, published some five years after his debut, Path to the Spider's Nest The latter being a realist novel about the War, this isreminiscent of Calvino's later postmodern work The best way to explain this is by calling it a fairy tale, or a myth; it is told in that way, quite simply It is about a Viscount who is blown perfectly in half by a cannonball, but lives Without any spoilers, the surviving half returns from the War against the Turks The coolest thing about the book Il visconte dimezzato is how wherever he goes he cuts things perfectly in half, so one finds halved mushrooms on the floor, halved pears in the trees, halved octopuses on the shoreline Featured in my Top 5 Italo Calvino books Il visconte dimezzato : hilarious as it is thoughtprovoking, poised perfectly halfway between Calvino's 'straight' and 'quirky' novels A great starting point for newbies and an immortal classic for everyone else.
✓ Il visconte dimezzato ò This novel by Italo Calvino is from 1952 and is the first work of the trilogy of Our Ancestors, together with The baron in the trees and The nonexistent knight The story, told by the protagonist's nephew, is set in the 18th century The protagonist is Viscount Medardo di Terralba, who, having joined the Christian army, leaves with his squire to go and fight the Turks In the midst of an epic battle, Medardo is hit and split exactly in half by a cannon shot From the serious episode only the bad half of Medardo seems to have been saved, who returns to Terralba and proves cruel and cynical, up to establishing a regime based on terror that crushes all the inhabitants of Terralba Medardo has no inhibitory brakes, and in order: he confines his old nurse in the leper colony with invented accusations; he tries to poison his nephew with mushrooms; persecutes the Now this is how you do a fable What a joy the language is, even in translation Not to mention each character, good and bad alike, equal parts lovable and bizarre Once again, the only reason I’d want to have kids is to read Il visconte dimezzato them Calvino.
The Viscount Medardo of Terralba and his squire Kurt ride across the plagueravaged plain of Bohemia en route to join the Christian army in the Turkish wars of the seventeenth century On the first day of fighting, a Turkish swordsman unhorses the inexperienced Viscount Fearless, he scrambles over the battlefield with sword bared, and is split in two by a cannonball hitting him square in the chest.
As a result of the injury, Viscount Medardo becomes two people: Gramo (the Bad) and Buono (the Good) The army field doctors save Gramo through a stitching miracle; the Viscount is alive and cloven.
 With one eye and a dilated single nostril, he returns to Terralba, twisting the half mouth of his half face into a scissorslike half smile Meanwhile, Italo Calvino's Jekyll and Hyde TheI think about this one, the deeper andprovoking it becomes I can't say I enjoyed it as much as Calvino's other works but there's so much going on beneath the surface that it's really challenged me.
So after a bit of research I gathered that some people take this as a World War II/Cold War allegory and others take it to be a parable about human nature and morality Those can be the same thing, in my opinion.
It starts in the 17th century when the Viscount Medardo is split in half by a canon while fighting the Turkish Both halves survive in perfect symmetry, one evil and one good After returning from the war, the evil half of the viscount is a sadistic oppressor of his people ordering the death penalty for petty crimes, terrorizing peasants who contradict him, and commissioning devices of torture All in all, a sly and heartless fascist.
