Cities in "Invisible Cities" by Italo Calvino

If the book wasn't good enough, the names there simply fueled my already there adoration for quirky, peculiar names. It didn't hurt that I share a name with one of the cities in the book ;) For those of you who aren't familiar with the book is the place to go. The cities are listed in order of appearance, since it's pretty significant. In brackets I put the original Italian name, because the Italian alternative sometimes is equally pretty or interesting.
