The book is designed as an introduction to the study of Italian for students of different levels of proficiency. The material is graded according to its importance, frequency, and difficulty. The author recommends that beginners follow the order of the lessons, while more advanced learners can choose the topics that suit their needs. The book also encourages students to practice their speaking skills by using the conversational situations and the reading texts as models.

The book is based on the author's long experience as a professor of Italian at the University of Zagreb and as a translator and interpreter. Josip Jernej (1919-2006) was a prominent Croatian linguist, philologist, and lexicographer who specialized in Romance languages. He published several books and articles on Italian language and literature, as well as dictionaries and textbooks for Croatian learners of Italian.

The book was first published in 1974 and has been reprinted several times since then. It is one of the most popular and widely used Italian grammar books in Croatia and other countries where Italian is taught as a foreign language. It is praised for its clarity, accuracy, completeness, and accessibility. It is suitable for both self-study and classroom use.

In addition to his grammatical and lexicographical work, Jernej also contributed to the study of Italian literature and culture. He wrote essays and reviews on various authors and topics, such as Dante, Petrarch, Boccaccio, Machiavelli, Leopardi, Manzoni, Pirandello, Svevo, Montale, Pasolini, and others. He also translated several works from Italian into Croatian, such as Dante's Divine Comedy, Boccaccio's Decameron, Machiavelli's The Prince, and Pirandello's One, No One and One Hundred Thousand. He was a member of several academic and cultural institutions, such as the Croatian Academy of Sciences and Arts, the Accademia della Crusca, the Società Dante Alighieri, and the Istituto Italiano di Cultura.

Jernej was a respected and influential scholar who had a profound impact on the development of Italian studies in Croatia and beyond. He was also a passionate and dedicated teacher who inspired generations of students with his enthusiasm and knowledge. He received numerous awards and honors for his scientific and pedagogical achievements, such as the Order of Merit of the Italian Republic, the Order of Danica Hrvatska with the face of RuÄer BoÅkoviÄ, the Medal of Honor of the University of Zagreb, and the Lifetime Achievement Award of the Croatian Association of University Teachers.

Jernej died in Zagreb on March 20, 2005 at the age of 95. He left behind a rich and valuable legacy that continues to be relevant and useful for anyone interested in learning or teaching Italian. His books are still widely available and used as reference tools by students, teachers, translators, and researchers. His name is also commemorated by a street in Zagreb and a scholarship fund for Croatian students of Italian. e0e6b7cb5c
