Camorra is an 8th Grade Subject – Shakubook
The new book by Mariafrancesca Villani
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?
