This is the story of Sandro Romano-Livi, a young Italian Jew, leaving his Mediterranean island by boat, for the Belgian Congo (DR Congo), in 1926, as a stowaway.
Of his adventurous life in Central Africa, during the first fifteen years, of David-Kanza (aka Daviko), the mulatto son he adopts, a secret he will disclose to his white Anglican fiancée,
Gloria Simpson, born and raised in Rhodesia (Zimbabwe). Of their two daughters, Astrid and Dalia. Of his family’s difficult situation and of their hopes. Of the loss of his parents
and baby sister, who were sent to a nazi concentration camp. Of his many travels in the African bush and of his ultimate success as a businessman. Of the familyʼs departure to northern Italy, where they will settle, just before Central Africaʼs tragic events, whilst Sandro and Daviko will remain in Africa for a longer period. Of their love of the black continent and their incurable nostalgia. Of Astridʼs later humanitarian activities in Botswana and Malaw.
