Humour is a privilege of Anglo-Saxon cultures even though, to be sincere, some laudable Italian exceptions do exist - such as Achille Campanile from the 1930s and more recently Alessandro Bergonzoni, both favouring that surreal vein that I particularly like - a list of my humour books can be seen on another page, as well as one of cartoons. Also listed elsewhere is my collection of comedy movies
A. Campanile (1899-1977)
A. Bergonzoni (1958)
I started appreciating British humour as a teen-ager while reading the novels of P.G. Wodehouse and Jerome K. Jerome in their original version, later moving on to other authors, countries and media.
