Book Launch: Swahili version of Involuntary Witness by Gianrico Carofiglio, Oct. 16 2014 @ Italian Institute of Culture
The Italian Institute of Culture is honoured to host the book launch (in English) and meeting with Gianrico Carofiglio Author of the book SHAHIDI ASIYEKUSUDIWA (Swahili version of “Testimone Inconsapevole” [Involuntary Witness])
Date: Thursday, 16th October 2014
Venue: at the Italian Institute of Culture
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 is able to touch 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.
