Racconti Siciliani

Author: Danilo Dolci

Sellerio Editore, Palermo, 2008, pp. 428

Originally published: 1963

These stories, which Dolci collected in Sicily, are the medium through which he elucidates the local dimension of the mafia – its action and influence in Sicily – and its wider impact in Italy and beyond. This is a record of how ordinary people coped with their suffering of violence, and it aims to transmit their vision of social justice. The work has an educational value.
