The Periodic TableBook - 1984
The Italian author's most original work mixes memoir, history, fictional recreation, and poetic myth in a series of prose pieces, each correlated with an element of Mendeleevs periodic table, and presenting a snapshot of his own pre- and post- World War 2 experience as seen through the double lens of science and humanistic culture, while memorializing the Piedmontese Jewish community from which he came.
