Il puro vento dondola i grani retraces some of Mario Rigoni Stern’s military experiences, starting from his I racconti di guerra (Einaudi, 2006). From his voluntary enlistment in the Alpine skier corps in 1939, through the Albanian and Russian wars, captivity in Lager 1-B, and finally, the Resistance. The story of a boy who becomes a man through war, but never renounces his humanity.

So, this is how an eighteen-year-old survived those times. If I recall my companions back then, I see their young faces and remember their voices, the songs we sang quietly in the shelters of Mont Blanc. The first fell on those same mountains in June 1940, then came the countryside of Greek campaign and others remained forever on the Albanian mountains; and still more in the Balkans and the Russian steppes. There were always fewer and fewer of us. Then came the German camps and the Resistance. That was our twenties.
