"Memorie di una principessa etiope"

Rome, 17 July 2006

Campidoglio

 


Introduction by

Il Dott. Matteo Dominioni

Historian, University of Torino

 

The book was presented by 

Il Dott. Nello Ajello

Journalist and Author

"A marvelous book that takes us into a world that is completely unknown to us westerners, the complex world of the Ethiopian aristocracy of the 20s and 30s.",  Angelo Del Boca

This book by Martha Nassibou is a touching document describing a hardly known past.   It is therefore more striking in its tone and literary form,  such that it could dislodge the film "La vita bella".  This book,  "Memorie di una principessa etiope" should be read in  schools, the story should be told to today's Italian  school children of the age that Martha was in the book, so that they may understand, even if in the intentionally  chosen  fairy-like tone,  what were fascism, colonialism and racism. ,    Nicola Lablanca
