Alessandro Baltera, Matteo Tortone ( SWAHILI TALES )

Uploaded on Wednesday 14 November 2012


From the depths of an exhausted mine to the village on Lake Victoria where a tourist resort is going to be built, to exorcisms in the suburbs of Dar Es Salaam. Divided into three parts, Swahili Tales tells us the stories of people who are left at the margins of progress and history. Following the traces of old and new colonialism, of the survival techniques and of the ghosts of white men, the two authors venture on the roads of a rich and repeatedly plundered continent, which is nonetheless still capable of creating life.
