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 and was known as the Studs Terkel of Sicily. Dolci was the author of several works, including Sicilian Lives, a collection of locals’ stories told in their own voices.
