A new chapter in the story of the Dos Santos family: is love just a representation?

In Ovunque io sia, the Portugal depicted by Romana Petri is the backdrop for the stories of three women who, from the 1940s to nowadays, experience life in a Lisbon of poignant beauty. In the second book of the saga, Pranzi di famiglia, three brothers in search of themselves undertake a deep journey in family relations, in what is said and, especially, what is kept silent. With a strong narrative power, La rappresentazione (Mondadori), third chapter of the story of the Dos Santos family, portrays the dramatic coming and going between Italy and Portugal of paintress Albertini and her husband Vasco.
