pEnzo is the child of an Italian family who emigrated to Switzerland. He spends his childhood summers in Sicily, where he immerses himself in the way of life there, learning to love the Italian sense of family. In 1942, he is forced to break off his studies in Germany when he is drafted to Italy to join the war effort. He is deployed as an interpreter in Rome and on the island of Lampedusa. His cousins are caught up in the war too, working as a fighter pilot, a priest in the Vatican who helps refugees, and a partisan. Another of them acts as an intermediary between the mafia and the American secret service, a collaboration that is seldom mentioned in accounts of this period of history.
