    Lights in Milan

    Milan, between the end of the 1940s and the middle of the 1960s. A city suspended between the memory of the war, just ended, and a great desire to start anew, which will lead to the ‘economic miracle’. This is the context in which Pierfranco Faletti – engineer, manager and author – sets the vicissitudes of a group of young people from Milan, interlacing them with 50 ‘fragments’ that tell the history of those years. Events, objects, innovations, films, music, people, to rediscover a period in which Milan was one of the most representative cities in a country that, brought to its knees by the war, never gave up but kept on fighting and working to rebuild and innovate – a country that wanted, more than ever, to look to the future. Ernesto is the narrative voice, a young man who, with his friends, belongs to the “station gang”. A fluent and nostalgic read that has readers leafing through the book as if it were an old photo album.
