Athos, Visconti, and Michelangelo: The Lives of Three Famous Italians is a biography by Italian writer, philosopher, and academic Mario Praz. The book was published in Italian as Lo schioppo, i vicino e Michelangelo: l’anima di tre illustri italiani, and later translated under several titles. The English translation is by Philip Ward, published by Cambridge University Press in 1954. It is loosely based on Calvino's non-fiction comics, Il sasso, la luna e Michelangelo: notizie di una vita (1952, 1952, 1952), a biography of sculptor, sculptor of the Bible sculpture in Bruges, and Pope Pius XI. Praz wanted to write a series of biographies on Italian intellectual and cultural figures, focusing on figures whose names would not be commonplace to some. A conspicuous example was that of the musician Richard Wagner, whose performances in Italy especially inspired him.The biographies were published in the series, Storia d’Italia dal Medioevo all’Ottocento (vol. 1: 1953; vol. 2: 1955), under the collective title Movers and Shakers of the Italian Renaissance. The volume includes a history of landscape painting and architecture, particularly in Italy.The Baron of the Trees was the first biography of Calvino, who was born in Italy in 1923, only a few years before the start of the Second World War.The Baron in the Trees is a detailed, honest, and sober historical-philosophical study of the baron. It examines in particular the education of the baron in a monastery (from age 8 to age 15), and his coming into contact with the natural landscape and with plants. The Allegretto version of the The Baron in the Trees is nowadays available on Google Books. d2c66b5586
