AUTHOR BIO:

Rosario Esposito La Rossa is a Knight of the Italian Republic. Editor and writer, he’s the founder of La Scugnizzeria, the first ever bookshop in Scampia. He contributes to La Repubblica and Il Fatto Quotidiano.

DESCRIPTION:

Thirty stories to tell the lives of the Invisible, the innocent casualties, the survivors of the latest Camorra war, the stories that will never see global recognition. Agave Flowers is a journey without bias in the neighbourhood that’s now become a symbol for criminality. Stories told by the ones who resist while insisting on helping the neighbourhood younglings, the “Scugnizzi”. A multimedial book that can also be listened to. Two-hundred and fifty pages of resilience, words that violently hurt while softly caressing. Adolescents, addicts, mothers, inmates: humanity and dignity hidden behind the plagues of Camorra. Stories of an extraordinary Scampia never told by newspapers.
