“Dario loves that solitary beach a lot, where he can play Robinson Crusoe undisturbed. And he loves the island too, the sea abounding in fish, the volcano, the vineyards that reach the sea. Dario thinks he will never leave that island and later he will grow the vineyards planted by Massimo. But one day a boat with a terrible load comes to the beach, Massimo’s vineyards are burned and nothing is like before anymore. Not even the happyness.”

A small masterpiece of writing which unites adventure, thrills and an educational story: it’s the story of an adolescence and two mutual lonelinesses. But it is also the story of a strange kidnapping and an initation story.

Livio Sossi from “El: metaphors of childhood” Einaudi Children, 1998
