“Mare al mattino” is a book that talks about a very typical matter.
Two life stories are narrated: the first one is about Farid, a libyan kid that, along with his family, sees in Italy the only one opportunity to change his life, oppressed by a country in the middle of a war.
The other one is the story of Vito, a sicilian guy son of  a libyan woman who sees, in her homeland, the dream of a happy and perfect life which won’t ever come back.

The sea that divides the two nations is the element that connects the stories, the same sea that, nowadays, accomodates many people’s illusions, which are often meaningless and that we see everyday on the news. Yes, because hundreds of emigrants lose their lives in the hope of arriving in Italy and starting all over again.
