The Garden of the Finzi-Continis is considered the best of the series of novels that Bassani produced about the lives of Italian Jews in the northern Italian city of Ferrara. Although the novel focuses on the relationships between the major characters, the shadow of creeping Italian fascism , especially the racial laws that restricted Jews' participation in Italian society, looms over all the novel's events.
According to Bassani, one hundred and eighty-three Jews living in Ferrara were deported to German concentration camps , predominantly under the puppet Italian Social Republic in The novel opens with a brief prologue set in in which the narrator, an Italian Jew , describes a visit to the Ferrara cemetery where the Finzi-Contini family mausoleum stands, empty in all but two slots: At this point, the narrator reveals that none of the Finzi-Continis survived.
The narrator fails his math test in this particular year, the first time he has failed any of the annual exams required for promotion, and he takes off on his bike out of fear of his father's reaction.
He excuses himself out of concern for the safety of his bicycle. The next two parts of the book cover the years when the children are all in or just out of college. However, her attitude towards the narrator remains one of friendship so that the relationship slowly peters out. There are at least three English translations of the novel: It won the Golden Bear at the Berlin Festival.
