Francesco Ferro, born on March 19 1993 in Germany, has studied Linguistics and British/American Studies in Stuttgart. He's the descendant of Sicilian immigrants who came to Germany as 'Gastarbeiter' during the Economic Miracle after World War II. The story about the period of suffering of the Faraone family is his first novel and takes place in both his hometowns, Sindelfingen (Germany) and Mirabella Imbaccari (Sicily).
Descripción del libro
The family epic is about the endless suffering of the Faraone family, who fled from a Sicilian village to Stuttgart during the Economic Miracle. In difference to other Sicilian families, Ciccio Faraone doesn't strive for economic prosperity, but for bringing his family to a safe spot, as he believes that it's the fault of a curse that takes a life after another of his family members. Just before he gets to know what this curse is all about, Ciccio dies. So does his son, who does not just take over his father's unfinished task, but also finds the one solution to this. The third generation, Ciccio's grandson, faces an identity crisis before willing in to extinguishing the curse out of Faraone's world.

The target reader likes to know more about foreign cultures and the never answered question the child of a migrant asks himself: Where do I belong to?

I'd love my cover to have an appearance like Daniel Speck's "Bella Germania" has. It's simple, yet effective in my eyes, but feel free to apply also your ideas. In my photographs, I included the stock picture of an old man on a donkey. It would be great to see a man (who represents Faraone) on horseback, in this Bella Germania-style. Of course I'm also open to your ideas.
Lo que debe evitarse
Sorry, I have to add: The given picture of the old man must not be used for the design, since I don't have the rights for this picture. It can resemble the man, if possible, a bit of a shady look.
Avoid stock pictures if possible. The story is about the period of suffering of a family, so colors like pink do not fit. I like it simple and effective.
