At almost fifty years after the disappearance of him Don Lorenzo Milani, priest of the last and extraordinary Italian, many times rebooted but often misunderstood, he does not stop questioning. Eraldo Adorned has collected the existential challenge, still open and dramatically unfinished, retracing the streets of his short and fulminant adventure: Florence, where he was born of a rich and cultured family with a mother of Jewish origin, he attended the seminar and died between his arms his schoolchildren; Milan, place of formation and failed pictorial vocation; Montespertoli, in the background of Gigliola, the prestigious master villa; Castiglioncello, home of the mythical summer holidays; San Donato di Calenzano, who saw the young deputy in action in the first popular school founded by him; Barbiana, "ecclesiastical penitentiary", in a lost village of the Tuscan Apennines, amazing theater of the revolution of him. But in this book, the result of passionate investigations and scenograms, he aimed at legitimizing the writing that follows him, we will not find only the history of man with the testimonies of those who attended him.
