Dances With Luigi : Who was the gentle man whose dying thoughts after a factory accident were not of his mutilated body but of his responsibility to his family? And why would a man who was a hero to his home village in Italy suddenly break all ties and never speak of his homeland again? In this spirited memoir, veteran TV journalist Paul Paolicelli does what all of us can only dream of - he picks up and moves to a foreign country in an attempt to piece together the mysteries surrounding both his grandfathers. With the help of Luigi, his guide and companion, he travels throughout Italy - Rome, Gamberale, Matera, Miglionico, Alessandria, even Mussolini's hometown of Predappio - and discovers the tragic legacy of the Second World War that is still affecting the Old Country.
