Grade-school report cards are scary documents, made even more so by by the Italian Fascist Ministero Dell’ Educazione Nationale. The reports here show that the brothers Enzo and Vincenzo Radino were pretty fair students back in 1930. But they weren’t straight A (or buono) students.
These report cards were standard issue during the Mussolini regime. Each was adorned with Il Duce’s signatory M logo. One has the map of Italy’s occupied territories in North Africa (note Libya and Ethiopia), the other the militant symbol of Fascism. These cards were issued to young Italian boys just a few years away from being inducted as young Fascist men.

World's best pie apple. Essential for Tarte Tatin. Has five prominent ribs.
So pretty. So early. So ephemeral. Tastes like strawberry candy (slightly).
My personal fave. Ultra-crisp. Graham cracker flavor. Should be famous. Isn't.
High flavored with notes of blood orange and allspice. Very rare.
Jefferson's favorite. The best all-purpose American apple.
New Hampshire's native son has a grizzled appearance and a strangely addictive curry flavor. Very, very rare.
Makes the best hard cider in America. Soon to be famous.
Freak seedling found in an Oregon field in the '60s has pink flesh and a fragrant strawberry snap. Makes a killer rose cider.
Ben Franklin's favorite. Queen Victoria's favorite. Only apple native to NYC.
Really does taste like pineapple.
