The series is based on the story "From the Apennines to the Andes" included in the novel 'Cuore' by Edmondo De Amicis. The plot-line was much expanded in the series, and many characters were added. See more »
This classic was released in 1976 in Spain after the great success of "Heidi" and was a great social phenomenon.My mother and all my family cried with the life of this italian child that searched his mother in Argentina.Based on a popular novel,"Marco"has been re-released several times in Spain with a great success.The animation is good and the characters (like the monkey of the child or the italian people)are well described.Is a good example of good japan anime.
