Camorra is an 8th Grade Subject – Shakubook

The new book by Mariafrancesca Villani

The Plot:

Year 2052. Nicole is a ninety-year-old “girl” on a bicycle trip with her grandchildren to

the beautiful park of Bagnoli. A Bagnoli finally returned to life and to

the beauty of its uniqueness. Just what all of us Neapolitans hope to see!

And from a park bench, facing the wonderful beach and those crystalline waters, she leaves a precious “legacy” to Clara and Dario, her grandchildren, who

listen to her bewitched. Naples, the world that was and the world of the future, merge

into one, leaving the reader with the exciting flavor of hope, but

also the disenchantment of illusion. And so the first part of this

debut novel ends, that, like a matryoshka, opens into two other stories that, on the

trail of really happened events, bring us back down to earth. Into reality.

There is the author’s personal journey, her compelling life and her desire to

always fight to achieve goals and objectives. What seems impossible

to reason but accessible to the heart, can be defined as probable? To reveal it

will be the last act, the story of the theft of a bicycle that magically closes the

circle and reveals an opportunity to the unthinkable reality of 2052 that

seemed naively imaginative to us before. Will perhaps be the realization of

Ciro and Rosa able to make a different Naples, a new humanity, possible?
