give the character sketch of nicola and jacopo separately

Dear Student,
Given below is the answer to your question.

Nicola was thirteen years old, loving, caring, responsible and quite innocent. He was a diligent worker who took care of his younger brother and ailing sister with an almost mother-like affection. He would often let his young brother sleep while he went out to sell newspaper, never indulged in self-pity in spite of their penurious condition and also possessed a rebellious spirit that made him face life quite stoically. His sense of purpose and drive to work was motivated by his devotion to his ailing sister. Jacopo was the younger of the two brothers, twelve years old, full of life and innocence, he carried an air of seriousness well beyond his actual years. He was as diligent and dedicated as his older brother and shared the responsibility of taking care of their sister. 

I hope you find this answer helpful. Please post more questions on the forum to be assisted by our team.
Thank you.

Nicola and Jacopo are two brothers which are 13 and 12 years respectively.They belong to Verona a city in Italy.They are engaged in different works to earn money .like-selling fruits(like strawberries), polishing shoes . guiding tourists,selling newspapers etc..They are too small for doing these small works but they all do this in pursuit to earn money. This shows that they are so hardworking.They don't see whether it is day or night , they just focus on the amount of work they have to complete that day(like selling newspaper's part, even in the night they were travelling from one place to another to sell the bunch of newspaper they had).they are mature enough to understand the situation . They were collecting money to pay fees for their sister's treatment of tuberculosis and to make their sister well they don't even spend money on themselves(neither they wore proper clothes as they were shabbily dressed nor they ate enough food . they only ate black bread). this shows that they are too understanding and they too care for their sister.The whole story revolves around these two boys and their hardwork and by seeing their matureness they are considered as Two Gentlemen of Verona.
