VADO VERSO IL CAPO
A legendary book is back with photos
"Twenty years have gone by, and 'Vado verso il Capo', like some politicians, is still among us. To celebrate, we gave him a new dress, but underneath it still is the very same diary written by a fucking naive kid: I would like that this also applied to the author."
Twenty years after it first hit the bookstores, Sergio Ramazzotti's legendary African journey is back, the description of an Africa that will never come back and another that looks set to stay that way forever. For the first time, on two brand new digital editions, published by Feltrinelli, with dozens of previously unpublished photographs that the author has managed to shoot and save from thieves and the military. Photographs illustrating the 13,000-km travel from Algiers to Cape Town, through the Sahara and the jungle on board all kinds of public transport - bicycles, trucks, freight trains, taxis, vans, ferries, small boats - or on foot, often left without money to bribe the authorities, but always close to those indelible characters that enliven its pages, still incredibly vivid after all these years.
