The white handkerchief is an intense and poignant story: told with sensitivity by Viorel Boldis and sharp black and white woodcuts of Antonella Toffolo. It is the story of a departure from one’s homeland and its traditions, and of the consequent tear to the link with a family (loved and hated with equal intensity). But it is also the story of the confrontation with the harsh reality of the cold and inhospitable lands where migrants arrive. And, finally, it is the story of a return to one’s afections and roots, full of anxieties and joy, pathos and emotions, after the rebellion of adolescence.
