In famiglia

(In the family) Book not yet available in English


How many types of families are there? You can have a large or a small family, you can live far or near, eat the same things or choose for yourself, but what is important is to love each other.


Sandro Natalini’s In famiglia (“In the family”) describes different types of family ties taking inspiration from rabbits, ducks, pigs, elephants, zebras, koalas, seahorses, and even humans. It presents many ways of being together, near or far, similar or different, multicultural or traditional, because what really matters is stated in the opening dedication: “the bond that unites a family is not that of blood, but that of respect and joy for each other’s lives. What makes us parents and children is neither flesh nor blood; it is the heart.” Atypical and extended families of our time are presented to children with great delicacy and irony. The author considers In famiglia a text against any kind of discrimination.
