“A writer who haS lived a thousand lives.”

Marco Ansaldo, «Robinson – la Repubblica»

A solitary farmer, Leo Vialetti lives in a valley in Liguria. He is passionate about olives and graft, but he is also a poacher. And he has an obsession: to buy a crumbling villa that the City will auction in 2024. The owner is a supposedly dead desaparecido called Raul Porti. In 1976, before his disappearance, Raul had been Leo’s tutor and their lessons took place in the same villa that now Leo, almost sixty years old, is willing to purchase.

Once he has sold his best piece of land in order to take part of the auction, Leo decides to go looking for Raul in Argentina, and this journey will lead him to discoveries that he never thought possible.
