Ai no Gakko Cuore Monogatari (愛の学校クオレ物語 Ai no Gakkō Kuore Monogatari ?) is an anime based on the novel "Cuore, Libro per i Ragazzi" (Heart: An Italian Schoolboy's Journal) by Edmondo de Amicis[1].



The story takes place in nineteenth century Italy[2]. The events in the anime are based on Enrico Bottini's Journal.

The boys in early adolescence, innocent and susceptible, meet a teacher of virtue. He tells them honorable and heart-warming stories with which the boys feel great empathy.

After experiencing hard times and sharing various joys with their friends and family, the boys recognize what is most important of all: to love others[3]
