A portrait of Sicily through the eyes of one of its more important writer, a portrait of the writer through the lights and shadows of his land. A clear interpretation of Italian history, in particular Sicilian, from the post-war period to the present day: emigration to the north, the life of sulphur miners, the end of the farming world, rapid industrialization, speculation of the territory, earthquakes and reconstructions of the wilderness, mafia massacres, of the past and present.
A story that Vincenzo Consolo has experienced first-hand, sharing it with the most important intellectuals of our country.
