Diary of Writing Italy’s Sorrow

Rome, May 22, 2004
Back to Rome again and made my way to Wolf’s apartment in the hills north of the Tiber.  Wolf has German parents, was brought up in Canada, and has married an Italian.  His uncle-in-law ended up as a general in the Carabinieri,  but in the war led a number of Italians over a treacherous snow-covered mountain to escape German occupation.  Like many young men, he neither wanted to be drafted into the Neo-Fascist Army or become a German labourer.  Back home in the evening.
