Abstract

"La mossa della regina bianca" (1953-56) by Soviet writer Lev Abramovic Kassil' shows, through the organic narration of the story of a skier and her coach, the importance of sport and its ability to arouse emotions in the spectators for sports victories and as a consequence to awaken national pride. Furthermore, the text represents an early example of crossover literature for the admiration it engenders towards physical abilities, but also towards tenacity and loyally, thus revealing the profound pedagogical intent that animates it. The rigorous sports training of the protagonists - in this specific case for the participation of the Soviet delegation in the Winter Olympics in Cortina in 1956 - has in fact been a stimulus for generations of readers.
