Terroni: All That Has Been Done to Ensure that the Italians of the South Became "Southerners" (Via Folios)
Literary Nonfiction. Translated from the Italian by Ilaria Marra Rosiglioni. "Pino Aprile's TERRONI is one of those books that could cause a revolution, albeit a peaceful one, if read by enough people. It could become 'the spark that starts the fire' by igniting a sentiment of unity among southern Italians, who are discovering that something is missing in mainstream history books informing how Italy was united 150 years ago."—Naples Politics
