Bianca come il latte, rossa come il sangue by Giacomo Campiotti

  • Embassy of Italy 3000 Whitehaven Street Northwest Washington, DC, 20008 United States (map)

Leo is 16. He has wild hair and a habit of dividing life up into colours. Everything he can't stand is white: school, teachers, silence, fear. Everything he loves is red: music on his iPod, his soccer team, the blood in his veins. And the colour of Beatrice's hair... she's the most beautiful girl at school and he watches her from a distance, in utter adoration. Leo's dream is Beatrice. The girl who has leukemia. Do dreams die? Is love any stronger than death?
