Retracing the places from which he took his first steps as a correspondent, the author guides the reader to the dark side of the earth. It takes him through a gripping excursion to show the darkest tragedies of humanity: the poor people of Monrovia who celebrate Christmas and New Year at the cemetery, drinking, eating and sleeping next to the graves of the deceased; the many Mexican emigrants who, chasing the dream of reaching America, have their legs chopped off by freight trains; the inhabitants of La Oroya enveloped in an apocalyptic dust of lead, zinc, sulfur and arsenic emitted from the "smelter of death" in the center of the town; the massacre of civilians in Tamil land; the favelas of terror in Caracas and the children of the Cuban Revolution fleeing from an impoverished and hopeless reality. Told in the first person, halfway between memoir and reportage, "Lontani da qui" is the painful and moving account of an entire life dedicated to the journey that ends with a great lesson: the blood shed on the battlefields will never improve the course of history, until the hearts of those who fight change.
