about Sea and other stories

"Valentina, Basilicata is the most beautiful place in the world!" He always says Rocco, the director of my favorite bookstore.
Rocco was born right there and he feels a strong feeling of love for his land.
"Are not you exaggerating a bit '? The other Italian regions are beautiful ... "I say to him to tease him.
"They are not as Basilicata. »
He must know it very well, because every time I see him he tells me about a different area: Maratea and Potenza, the Monticchio Lakes, Matera, the Pollino massif ... What a thrill when the teacher asked me to take a holiday in Basilicata with his family and Tazio!


Angelo Petrosino
 was born February 3, 1949 in Castellaneta (TA) and the age of ten  he emigrated to France.
At first in the Auvergne, then moved to Paris that he considers his adopted city.
Both his years in the country of origin and  the period of stay in France, they have been decisive in many ways.
He recalled them in a book which is titled "Mi chiamo Angelo - Storia di un viaggio (My name is Angel - Story of a journey.)"
