ITALIAN DESCRIPTION:
Estate 1927. I contadini e i braccianti della Marsica, i “cafoni”, vivono di stenti, coltivando per i padroni la terra pingue del Fucino e per sé le pietraie del monte. Rassegnati e quasi assuefatti a subire senza reagire catastrofi e soprusi di ogni genere, abbrutiti dalla miseria e dalla lotta per la sopravvivenza, trovano la forza di ribellarsi quando si rendono conto dell’ultima, ennesima truffa ordita sulla loro pelle che, per una coincidenza non casuale, corrisponde temporalmente all’entrata in scena del regime fascista. Figura centrale del romanzo è Berardo Viola, che rappresenta l’esigenza di riscattare una vita di silenzio e passività, esigenza che diverrà essenziale e imprescindibile anche per gli altri “cafoni” fontamaresi.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION:
Fontamara is a village in the Marsica, forgotten by all but God and its inhabitants are called ‘cafoni’ (boors). Berardo Viola wants to marry Elvira but only after gaining enough money to buy some land and to reach his aim he has the idea of going to a great city. When Maria Grazia is raped by the fascists, Berardo and Antonio decide to leave Fontamara and go to Rome. Here they are swindled by a lawyer and afterwards they are invited by an antifascist to a restaurant where they are arrested by the police because of some subversive papers they had. Berardo dies from the tortures and Antonio can only go back to his Fontamara after signing a paper in which he declares that Berardo had killed himself…
