Amedea was sixteen in nineteen and forty, the year of Italy's entry into the war; he had experienced political persecution, poverty, the harshness of agricultural work, the lack of schooling in his family. Since those years, Amedea feels the need to choose, to take great steps on the path of regaining the dignity of people, of participating in the great events of history. Enter the Resistance and make the relay; he knows the dangers, the hardships, but also the great values of friendship and solidarity. He feels the need to enrich and consolidate his historical and cultural knowledge. Books are great friends and have always been our best travel companions. The profound pleasure of understanding the history of her family, the different experiences in the world of work, trade union activity and politics always accompanies her.
