As mentioned on Friday, today we have the publication of our newest Italian ‘easy reader’, one from our ‘Book of the film‘ series of simplified texts based on classic Italian movies.
So without further ado, a round of applause please, ladies and gentlemen, for…
Ragionier Fantozzi, Ugo is an Italian everyman, though not a very happy one!
Ugo is ambivalent, to say the least, about his job and his family. He dares to hope for more from both his professional and personal lives, though never seems surprised when his ambitions are thwarted!
The 1971 book was a million-seller. And mention the 1975 film, on which our ‘easy reader’ is based, to any Italian to get them happily talking you through their favourite scenes.
For a rather different insight into Italian life and attitudes, don’t miss the unforgettable cultural meme that is Fantozzi!
Download the free sample chapter (.pdf) to see the level and complexity of the material.
The link to the FREE online audio (for the whole story) is at the top of chapter 1 of the sample chapter.
Oh, and if you’d like to follow up on reading/listening to our easy reader version by watching the actual film?
Many thanks to Mary, who sent me this link to a much better-quality version of the movie than the one I linked to last week.
‘Fantozzi‘ is on offer all this week at a 25% discount on our usual ‘easy reader’ price.
Get the full version while the offer lasts.
