OLTREMANICA is a project on Italian immigration based on the story of Vincenzo Rabito, a Sicilian illiterate born in 1899, who wrote the story of his life when his son gets a degree in 1968. This diary is very important from an historical point of view as it helps us frame life in Italy for more than 50 years. The diary has been published as a book with the name Terra Matta and is written in a very peculiar language half Sicilian dialect and half Italian (due to the fact that Vincenzo has learn in his thirties to speak Italian).
OLTREMANICA is part of the wider project OLTREOCEANO which has seen the monologue presented multiple times in Argentina and Uruguay to second and third generation Italians.
