 Do you know your father? Do you know who he really is? Do you know his past? The forty-year-old teacher Ilaria would probably have answered these questions with "yes", and also her relatives believed to know her until one day a young African on the landing in front of her apartment in Rome sits and claims to be related to her. His identity card says: Attilio Profeti, that is her father's name ... But he is too old to give any information. This is where Ilaria's journey of discovery begins, from where Francesca Melandri unfolds an almost unbelievable family story spanning three generations and a ruthless portrait of Italian society. And it brings the hitherto repressed Italian colonial history of the 20th century into literature: Melandri links Italy's connections to Ethiopia and Eritrea to the current political conflicts with the fate of today's refugees and poses the key questions of our time: What does it mean to be born by chance in the "right" country, and how do proximity and the feeling of belonging arise? www.allerart-bludenz.at
