This book tells the story of thousands of citizens, associations and organisations that have slowly been working on building a better future with their commitment to change the many difficult aspects of life in southern Italy.
To give back dignity to the future, not only in the south, but in the whole country. This book, written to mark the tenth anniversary of the Foundation “Con il Sud”, explores the realities of this idea through the vision of writers, intellectuals, economists, sociologists, representatives from various institutions, women and men who, starting from the complexity of issues faced, highlight their limits and strengths. Beyond mainstream opinion, prejudice, statistics and pessimism there is “future never seen before”, just waiting to be conquered. A compilation of point of views and testimonies illustrated by pictures selected from a free Internet photography contest.
