Giorgio Manganelli and Antonio Moresco are by far the best prose writers you can find in the Italian language - at least, if you can stomach prose less than a century old. Otherwise just stick to Verga, Manzoni and all the other classics. They aren't as fun tho.
Dante's "the Divine Comedy" I love how he just get's angry at people in everyday life and writes them in for no good reason and it ruined their lives, it's like me writing: "and there's STEVE, the bastard raised the price of the book I said I was going to buy, YOU ARE GOING T HELL STEVE" And it becoming as popular as Harry Potter.
>>7328805 Boccaccio. Fuck the haters, he actually writes about what normal people thought and felt. Although I'm probably extremely biased by being incredibly interested in renaissance Italy as a whole, so anything primary that goes in-depth about what and how people thought is a wet dream come true.
Then there's Mr Collect Wheat Erryday himself. Although you've probably already read that.
I'd also say Machiavelli...but that would definitely just be my historyboner talking.
