I was born Maria Martore in 1934. But I have been renamed Iucci by my husband Eugenio Piergiovanni. He is thirteen years my senior, is fluent in three languages and is a charismatic businessman. We have left Italy and the only family I have ever known to go to Africa seeking adventure and fortune.
I keep thinking – Is Africa really going to be that welcoming? Is my husband’s dream of selling Haute Couture to expatriates ridiculous?
Based on true events during 1950-60, and through the writing skills of her author daughter, Maria-Iucci’s story, is narrated as a memoir, as if living in the moment. Coinciding historical event timelines have been carefully researched and evocative photographs included.
