  • Epigraphs:

    La razza maledetta, che popola tutta la Sardegna, la Sicilia e il mezzogiorno d’Italia … dovrebbe essere ugualmente trattata col ferro e col fuoco–dannata alla morte come le razze inferiori dell’Africa, dell’Australia…

    The damn race that populates Sardinia, Sicily and Southern Italy… should be treated equally with fire and sword‒damned to death as the inferior races of Africa, of Australia…

    – Napoleone Colajanni, Per la razza maledetta

    The violence of a racialised society falls most enduringly on the details of life: where you can sit, or not; how you can live, or not; what you can learn, or not; who you can love, or not. Between the banal act of freedom and its historic denial rises the silence.

    – Homi Bhabha, The Location of Culture
