ITALIAN TALES: Stories of the Mezzogiorno

 

Family honor, jealousy, curses and retribution.

From mountain villages in the Mezzogiorno to immigrant neighborhoods in America, healers, matriarchs and defiant daughters endure the somber shadows of resentment and suspicion to shape their own victories. Giulia Fiorillo, the youngest daughter in a prominent family in her village, learns from both her mother and her grandmother the divergent ways in which a woman can triumph in a challenging world. In another village, Fiammetta Navarra holds onto a treasure filled with bitter memories and transforms it into a life-changing gift.
