This ongoing series is a story based on the memories of my grandfather during the years when he experienced the Second World War in first person, in the very poor countryside of Umbria, a hilly region in the center of Italy. Far from the big cities where ideologies and political confrontation were more heated. The distant echo of the decisions of the generals and the men in charge was reflected on the lives of those forced to suffer the consequences. The stories of these people took place and were ignored by the great historical narrative.
