The first Paper Novel in the world - an investigative novel between fiction and reality - to tell a story of emigration with supernatural hues.
An ancient curse. A dark presence. A hostage country.
Steve Caruso, an Italian-Canadian journalist, is sent to Montaguto, a small town in southern Italy where an eight-year-old boy has disappeared. A few days later, two thirty-year-olds disappear. In ’95 the traces of another boy, Luigi Altieri, were lost. The clues lead to the “Master Chapel”, a funerary monument where the disturbing portrait of an engineer who died in Toronto is kept. In the meantime, a mammoth landslide continues its descent towards the valley, bringing to the surface a dismal history.
“Mike J.” Pilla was born in Naples in 1982. Journalist and radio/television presenter, he directs the newspaper Montaguto.com, a point of reference for Italian Americans. In New York he decided to create “Italian Heritage TV”.
