Saving Madonna (Paperback)
"We are all saving our country, can't you see? They might be fighting for our country's very existence as a free nation. But I am fighting for what comes afterwards. I want to fight to save the madonnas and the concertos and the marble statues and holy relics that are part of our country's very soul. Who are we, really, if we lose all that?"
Inspired by real events, an unforgettable story of love, courage and sacrifice to save a country's cultural heritage.
In the fall of 1943, the people of northern Italy are trying desperately to survive, caught up in the intense battles between partisans, fascist militia and the occupying Germans. Against this backdrop, based on actual events, SAVING MADONNA tells the story of Elena, a courageous young art curator, and Luca, a farmer trying to keep his family safe, who, together, risk everything to embark on a dangerous mission to help save Italy's cultural heritage.
