è oltre il ponte
vite sospese al di là delle Linea Gotica
From the stories of my grandfather, a man who had fought in the Italian Resistance, within the woods and the valleys of the Fourth Operative Area (Lunigiana), this “partisan romance” has born. It portrays the common people and not the kings and in it the events really happened get mixed up with the emotions of the child who listened to them, with the description of landscapes and places where the partisans fought, with the documental research, as an added value, marked by Italo Calvino’s lines: “Non è detto che fossimo santi, L’eroismo non è sovrumano“.
Not to forget.

A partisan romance
The idea is to trace a story from memories collecting lives and experiences, a story about men and women who chose the side where to stay, without rhetoric, becoming partisans and spending two years of their youth risking life every day.
Bottom up production
Marotta&Cafiero Eds. publish this book with an innovative and sustainable philosophy and through a crowdfunding project where the 126% of the sum needed for its production has been collected.
A story of Resistance, an anti-fascist writer, a publishing house struggling daily to offer an alternative model of social enterprise and culture, in which commons and rights come together. In this way a memory of Justice, Liberty and Equality is built.
William Domenichini, born in La Spezia in 1978, currently works as a graphic designer in a private company.
Involved in the National Association of Italian Partisans (Associazione Nazionale Partigiani d’Italia, ANPI), in these years he has been and still is secretary of the Follo local branch and member of La Spezia provincial council.
With ANPI he has developed historical-cultural projects with schools, on the historical memory of the La Spezia Resistance, as Parole di Libertà (Words of Freedom), a project in collaboration with the poet Alfonso Pierro. In 2015 he produced the Calendar of Resistance in the Follo area, celebrating the 70th anniversary of the Liberation.
In 2016, with the historical and cultural association Stella Tricolore, he cooperated in the making of La battaglia dei Casoni, a documentary that describes the resistance of the “Val di Vara” partisan battalion to the Nazi-Fascist raid on August 3rd, 1944.
The blog, launch field
This is a project of memory re. facts and values about the Resistance against the fascism, a way to remember that our freedom, rights and duties come from the sacrifices of those who struggled to get them.
A way to undertake this memory journey will mean also to go on thinking, writing, discussing, and for this reason I start this blog (actually only in Italian), to preserve reflections and insights, related to this book and its values. I intend to “baptize” the blog as they called the place where the partisans of the “IV operative area” got the allies’ launches of ammunition, armaments, food and every aid given to their struggle against nazi-fascism.
From that open space on Mount Picchiara the rebel patriots collected what they needed for fighting, from these pages I would like to collect and share what can help us to remember, to take care of and to preserve the values that have been conquered at such high price.
