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 newspapers as La Repubblica and Il Fatto Quotidiano.

DESCRIPTION:

Tales from Scampia, told by those who live their every-day life in the shadows of the Vele. A street diary telling about a mankind made up of common people that strive to find normality amidst addicts and gangsters. Written when the author was only eighteen years old, this book originated during the infamous Scampia blood feud. It plunges ink deep into stories that will never make it to the front pages. Dedicated to Antonio Landieri, an innocent victim of the Camorra, disabled, murdered at the age of twenty-five, the author’s cousin. A book about hope, where the protagonists are children and young people looking for a reason to emerge out of their marginalisation.
