Passato Remoto - worth studying or not?
Ciao tutti, I'd like to get some opinions from native speakers and Italian learners. As an intermediate language learner, would you invest time to study the Passato Remoto? At which level would you recommend studying it?
I studied Italian for 3 years at school but we never did the Passato Remoto. People have told me that Italians rarely use it in everyday conversation, but it does seem to be used in books quite a lot, and I'd love to read Italian books sooner or later. My current level is somewhere around B1.
I know that in the end the decision is mine, but I'd find it really helpful to read what others think.
