Summers Alla Napoletana is the story of a boy growing up in and around the slums of Naples in the late nineteen fifties and early nineteen sixties. Based on personal memories of real events, places, and people, the story follows the disruption of migration and family separation. It tells of a timeless city in a time that has become, in the modern West, some sort of golden halcyon era. This is an atypical account of the sixties. It is not the usual story of baby boomers growing up in middle-class American suburbia but an insiders account of a world few people ever get to see or read about.
