(Salvini & Salcvini – his thoght from A to Z) by Roberto Poletti

LOLITO by Daniele Luttazzi
The protagonist of this novel is a mass- fascinating and shameless entrepreneur.  It is an unscrupulous confession of embarrassing and obscene situations: the corrupted adolescent, the panting manic, the pretending-to-be-young  mother become narrative devices, warnings against dangerous trends. The message? We must give youths a better education.
