1959. Le film de Federico Fellini, la Dolce vita, fait scandale en Italie, dans un pays pudibond tenu par l’Église ; il remporte la Palme d’or à Cannes en 1960. Son succès signe le début d’une ère pleine de promesses et de libertés qui rompt avec les années de pauvreté de l’après-guerre.
1969. Une bombe explose à Milan et fait seize morts. C’est un massacre, le premier d’u

How not to love Italy?
how not to be fascinated by its History, its culture and its food.
Mrs. Greggio describes us the period 1959-1979. It is a chronicle of the years of lead (the expression is of Margareth von Trotta) It is also the twilight of a certain brilliant Italy before the very vulgar years Berlusconi.
The book is made up small scenes which unroll chronological action of way. That starts with the first projection of Dolce vita of which nobody believes in success.
The chapters follow on

Who would not love Italy ? but who knows what happened behind the scene during the 60's and 70's, these "years of Lead". Who know that Italy hardly escape a Coup d'Etat that would have brought back the country into a new fascist regime ?
This book is giving you all the necessary keys .

J'adore l'Italie,

Malheureusement ce pays vit une réalité qui diffère a bien des points de vue de l'image idilique que l'on perçoit dans les guides touristiques
Durant ce premier volume, l'auteure nous fait revivre le

Greggio’s novel – which is actually as much a novel as a non fiction History book – is essential reading for anyone interested in what Italy really is (and was) beyond the picturesque image we may have of the country. The story starts, innocuously enough, with a depiction of the uncertain first screening of the iconic film La dolce vita, and then introduces us to two fictional characters (inspired by two very real persons) through which the whole story of the nation will pour, like an unstoppabl ...more

Découvrir ou redécouvrir les événements qui ont fait l’Histoire de l’Italie de 1959 à 1979, et voir que ce qui fait trembler l’Italie d’aujourd’hui en est la continuité, c’est ce que Simonetta Greggio nous montre ici. Nous les racontant au travers d’une confession, nous vivons ces faits sombres et sanglants, les voyant se connecter entre eux, découler les uns des autres, avec effroi et horreur. Abordant les sujets brûlants que sont la religion, la mafia, la politique, elle tente d’apporter des e ...more

Constitué de petites scénettes de quelques pages, avec en fil conducteur les repentances d'un prince, ce livre offre un visage de l'Italie entre 1959 et 1979 (âge d'or du cinéma, brigades rouges, lien entre la MAFIA et le pouvoir...)
