"My name is Amadeo. I'm 16 years old. Well, almost. Every morning, I ride my bike up to the top of the hill, where the fig trees grow, to read the daily horoscope to Don Palermo.He's seen a few things in his time, Don Palermo - over there in Stonefield USA, back in the 1930s. He started out living with a bear. Later, he lived with another one, less hairy but more dangerous: Don Pomodoro, a local Mafia godfather, the kind who kills first, and asks questions later. But Don Palermo has known love, too; the real kind. The kind that still gives you butterflies 70 years later..."
"Bearskin" takes us on a trip to modern day Italy and then all the way to the United States of the late 1930s. Every day, Amadeo bikes up the hill from his small hometown on a beautiful island off the coast of Italy to read the daily horoscope to Don Palermo. Little does he know that this blind and powerless old man with a cane in his hand used to be a bear tamer, not to mention his later shenanigans as the right-hand man of a powerful mafia boss. A highly moving story of love, vengeance and cowardice.
