I have a question regarding fullerenes and giant covalent structures.

One of my chemistry books said that fullerenes are a giant covalent structures and another said they are not. Which is correct.

Also, why is buckminsterfullerene written as C60 and not just the empirical form of C

They are because they are giant structures and are formed with non-metals, e.g buckminsterfullerene with carbon. C60 in order to differentiate from other forms of carbob.
