Synopsis

Ovosodo is the district in the heart of Livorno where Piero Mansani was born in 1974. It is also the nickname that

is given as a teenager. He is the son of an ex dock worker who is in and out of prison. Piero grows up with his retarded brother and a young and broken-hearted step mother in the chaos of a working class condiminium, amidst washing, burp competitions and friendly madmen. At first Piero is a serious child, then a pale adolescent, and finally a tough and sentimental young man. His world is inhabited by a number of characters. A universe that narrates, in the form of an adventure novel, the story of a boy, his encounters, his education and his loves.
