Fuori dalla Nebbia: due vite all’ombra di Giovannino Guareschi

by Giancarla Minuti Guareschi and Concetta Cirigliano Perna

This book by Giancarla Montagna Guareschi and Concetta Cirigliano Perna is a story of crossed destinies, almost Calvino’s style. Divided into two parts, the action moves from the Bassa Padana, where a famous writer protecting his image and three families are split by the absurd taboo of the legitimacy of birth, and Australia, where Giancarla, a brave woman fights to affirm basic human rights for herself and her husband. I followed the book in its construction. I admire endlessly the authors. And I predict for this very compelling book a great success.

Paolo Totaro AM (Poet)

The vicissitudes of the protagonist of this “biography of the soul”, can be read all in one breath. One is swept away by the tsunami of emotions aroused by this “self-analysis”. With narrative structure finely built and a compelling writing style, readers are drawn into a human story in which everyone can find a piece of himself.

Elena Gerardi (Psychotherapist and writer) Luciano Peirone  (Psychotherapist and essayist)

In this book, Giancarla ‘opens’ her soul with a disarming sincerity. I listened to her in silence, I was enchanted by her dignity. She was not afraid of being judged. In front of me stood a woman with an extraordinary experience, a life full of ups and downs, too often in front of crossroads without a sign. Too often she took roads less travelled by. With the intimate, unspoken joy to have designed and forged her own destiny, countering that traced by an unwanted birth. As much unwanted as that of Giuliano. Children of their time, victims of prejudices, hypocrisy, false morality. Two parallel lives in the shadow of one of the greatest Italian writers, chasing paternity, maternity and denied identities.

Concetta Cirigliano Perna (Co-author)

 'Fuori dalla nebbia' is a biography that narrates the journey of Giuliano Montagna and his wife Giancarla, out from the fog of Emilia Romagna lowlands. Two young people sharing the 'illegitimacy' of birth, their search for love and acceptance, their escape, both physical and metaphorical, away from the travesty of morality that surrounds them. A lifelong journey that from Parma, a city of the Italian province, will take them to the warm and welcoming Australian shores.
