ITALIAN DESCRIPTION:
Un lungo racconto autobiografico che ritrae, con affetto e partecipazione, la Sicilia, la cittadina di Bagheria, l'atmosfera in cui la Maraini approda da bambina dopo due durissimi anni di prigionia in un campo di concentramento giapponese. Dai ricordi, dai sapori, dagli odori, emerge tutto un mondo fatto di affetti profondi, di scoperte del sesso, della natura e poi la mafia, lo scempio edilizio, l'arroganza di una società che sconvolge.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION:
In Bagheria, Dacia Maraini revisits the landscape of early memory. She describes Sicily in sensuous detail, the town of Bagheria, and the ancestral villa to which she returned as a child after two horrific years of imprisonment with her family in a Japanese concentration camp. The Villa Valguarnera and Maraini recalls the spiritual struggles and her rebellion against the elitism of her class. She also discusses her experience of child abuse. Bagheria is also a tale of corruption: centuries of the town's past unfold alongside Maraini's family history as she details the involvement of the Mafia in the architectural decimation of Bagheria in the 1970s.
