I am with you. History of Brigitte

Brigitte arrives at Termini station one day at the end of January. She wears her light clothes, she's cold, hungry, she doesn't even know well in that she is. And she runs rushed from the Congo, then downloaded as a bulky package. The Rome station becomes the dorm of her, her trash her dinner. She was a nurse, mother of four children who now doesn't know even if they are still alive. When she is now totally drift she approaches a man, she addresses her the word, she doodles her on your napkin: is that of Centro Astalli, you will find a meal, human warmth and all the help you need them. In fact it is a new beginning, but it is also the beginning of a new odyssey. "I am with you" is a rare and necessary book for many reasons: it is the story of a meeting and a recognition, of a calvary and a rebirth, the description of an Italy together inhospitable and welcomed, politically inadequate and full of Realities and miraculous people. Melania Mazzucco has been involved on each page as a human being and as a writer, choosing a flexible and new form, exact, personal, charge of a retention and disruptive emotion. If in "life" he had narrated the epic of Italian emigration, now overturns the perspective: looking into the eyes these men and these women, mirroring in their stories, we will not be able to recognize the desperate energy that all unites us, when life We have overwhelmed us and try to get back up.
