In Italo Calvino's fantastical novel, The Baron in the Trees, we meet Cosimo Piovasco di Rondò, a rebellious young nobleman in 18th century Italy. Fed up with societal expectations and a domineering family, particularly his older sister, Cosimo makes a dramatic choice. He climbs a tree in his family's estate and declares he will never descend.

The story unfolds through the eyes of Cosimo's younger brother, Biagio. We witness Cosimo's remarkable adaptation to his arboreal life. He builds a network of treetop dwellings, learns to hunt and gather his food, and even forms friendships with the people below. His life amongst the branches isn't always easy, with threats from weather, wild animals, and even poachers. Yet, Cosimo finds immense freedom and purpose in his unconventional existence.

Why you should read The Baron in the Trees:

  • A whimsical escape: Immerse yourself in Calvino's imaginative world where life unfolds high above the ground.
  • Themes of rebellion and nonconformity: Cosimo's choice to live by his own rules challenges societal norms and inspires independent thinking.
  • Man vs. nature: The novel explores the challenges and rewards of living in harmony with the natural world.
  • A coming-of-age story: Witness Cosimo's transformation from a frustrated child to a resourceful and self-sufficient individual.
  • Love and connection: Despite his unusual lifestyle, Cosimo experiences love and forms meaningful bonds.
  • A philosophical exploration: The novel delves into questions about freedom, happiness, and finding your place in the world.
