Ireneo Paz, his grandfather, fought in the war of the reform against conservatives. Later he won the Miguel de Cervantes prize in 1981. THANK YOU FOR READING BYE.

My favourite Italian writer is Alessandro D'Avenia. He was born in Palermo, therefore he has a different perspective about life because the life in Sicily is different than in the North. More chaotic, very loud and friendly. He is an Literature teacher and he shares his passion about Literature and writers to his students. I like his books because when I read them, I can feel his passion to tell a story. My favourite book is "Bianca come il latte, Rossa come il sangue" because it's a very dramatic book and it tells a romantic story between a girl and a boy.
