The book: Shahidi Asiyekusudiwa

(Swahili translation by Graziella Acquaviva)


The story of a Senegalese hawker accused of the murder of a child. Clues and evidence nail the accused. His fate in court is marked by the lack of resources but also by the encounter with the lawyer Guerrieri whose fight to save the protagonist recovers his own will to live.


The author’s message is based on the conviction that dialogue between men of different nationalities and cultural origins is possible.  It depicts the meeting point between two worlds, two cultures that defeat the related prejudice to achieve a sense of truth together.

The long descriptions of the environment pass across a realistic image of our Italy and the African reader would be able to get in touch with the thoughts and perceptions of life as it is understood by a common Italian, represented by the character of the lawyer Guerrieri, with all his problems and his reflections.
