Progress: 1 of 10 questions


Italy is famous for its art, music, and movies. Its contribution to literature is less well-known outside Italy. When I wanted to learn Italian by reading books in the original... I had to refer to an encyclopedia first (that obviously was before the days of the internet). What do you know about Italian literature? Put yourself to the test...

At the beginning were the "Three Crowns" - famous authors who wrote the first works in what was then called 'volgare' (the 'popular language' as opposed to Latin), virtually creating the Italian literary language at the dawn of the Renaissance. Which of these four authors does not belong among them?
