“Gratta gratta l’europeista che vien fuori il colonialista” (Scratch, scratch the Europeanist, and you’ll find the colonialist)

Un’intervista de La Stampa allo scrittore Adriaan Van Dis, secondo il quale il Sudafrica si sarebbe “africanizzato” perdendo tutti i valori della “civilità europea”.

Africa is a Country (Old Site)

Oscar Pistorius being charged with the alleged murder of his girlfriend on Valentine’s Day has given the Dutch writer Adriaan Van Dis the chance to play “South African expert” in a long interview in Tuesday’s issue of the Italian newspaper La Stampa. Van Dis’s latest book, Tikkop (translated in Italian as “Tradimento”, or “Betrayal” in English), was the official reason why he’s being interviewed. La Stampa titled the article, “South Africa, The rainbow country where apartheid is replaced with fear.” According to the book’s Italian publisher Iperborea it is “a story about a trip in South Africa, memory about apartheid, the failure of a dream of freedom, friendship, and love for a language and a land.”
