With this new publication, the editors Paolo and Andrea Briganti give us what they rightly call a "book": Casa d'altri: Il libro, entitled thus by the author himself (unlike earlier published versions that were without any title on the manuscripts).
There follow a critical essay on Casa d'altri by Paolo Briganti, first published in 1982; narratological syntheses of the story; indications of the divisions of the various versions; and a bibliographical appendix listing D'Arzo's compositions and critical works about his writing.
