The color of my nameAuthor: Vittorio Longhi
The search for a missing father leads to shocking revelations about the author’s mixed-race identity, which is rooted in Italy’s dark colonial history. It is both a journey into the story of an Italian-Eritrean family and an actual present-day journey from Europe to Africa. In the background, is today’s mass migration from Africa to Europe with stories of unexpected racism and violence. The revelation of Europe’s dreadful colonial history and the suffering of new immigrants from Africa raise an urgent need for African-European awareness and commitment.
