It achieves this primarily through the memory of her father and her aunts, close relatives and all those people who have worked with her grandfather, risking their lives. An intimate portrait of General Carlo Alberto dalla Chiesa, as drawn by Dora, the granddaughter he never knew and who bears the name of his first wife.
