Faces of Lamole

Oriana Fallaci, Lamolese DOC

The Italian broadcasting company, Rai, dedicated a mini-series to her on channel one, centred around the life and carrier of the most famous Italian journalist, author of extremely beautiful reports full of civil passion and of thousands of interviews with the people that made the history of the 20th century. At some of the most important moments of her private and personal life, Oriana Fallaci, born in Florence (1929-2006) found solace in the hills that lead to Lamole.

In her family home, the journalist  (who published twelve novels worldwide and sold more than 20 million copies) brought Alexandros Panagulis “back to life” after he was released from the Greek prison where he had been confined in extremely harsh conditions in the seventies. She wrote some of her most important pages in Lamole after the September 11th, 2001 Twin Towers attack in New York.
