Clementina Todesco was born in 1903 in Faller, a remote Alpine village characterized by an extremely rich oral narrative tradition. Within the Fallerese way of life, the stable provided the setting for many of the work and social activities of both family and community. Villagers would gather in the evenings in the stables, where men might repair tools and women could do their spinning or embroidery. While Folktales in America captures a similar talent and love of storytelling in its subject Clementina Todesco, it is a work more formally structured as a scholarly study of one teller and her tales.
