Catia's Choice: 80 Sea Miles South of Lampedusa

West Charleston Library

Description

Italy's first female naval commander who came to the rescue of drowning migrants off the island of Lampedusa. One of the many stories of migrants attempting to make the perilous crossing from Africa to Sicily.
The story we read in the newspapers comes to life in this film, as does the humanity of the Italians, and their pride in giving command to a woman.
By Roberto Burchielli
