Danilo Dolci


About the Author

Danilo Dolci (1924-1997) was an Italian author, educator, political activist, and poet. Dolci rallied the Sicilian people to fight for change by teaching, campaigning for public works, and organizing sit-ins, fasts and ”strikes-in-reverse.” He was one of the only figures to shed light on the Sicilian mafia’s abuse after World War II; he was known as the “Studs Terkel of Sicily.” Dolci is the author of several works, including Sicilian Lives, a collection of locals’ stories told in their own voices.
