Lidia and Gustaw

Lidia and Gustaw

Gustaw Herling, former prisoner of the gulag, soldier in Montecassino, in exile in Naples where he married Lidia Croce, daughter of the famous Italian philosopher Benedetto Croce.
Thanks to Lidia we can read his diaries and extraordinary tales. Gustaw, victim of the cold war and author of the world known”A Word apart" (1952 - foreword by Bertand Russel) translated into at least 12 languages and international best seller. A great love. A story of intertwined destinies. We link in a plastic and poetic way his literature, some archives, some fictional reconstruction, some story telling from his family and friends, on the background of a surrealistic Naples between 1952 and 2020.
