The volume collects 154 letters by the writer Pier Maria Pasinetti (1913-2006) and by his sister-in-law Loredana Balboni (1920-2013), written between 1949 and 1959. The correspondence grew slowly after the untimely death of Francesco Pasinetti (1911-1949), and consolidated over the years. Delicate, affectionate, and pervaded by humor, the letters combine precious memories of Venice and Italy with personal accounts of America, offering a valuable picture of a decade when everything was changing, at different levels and speeds.
