Research Project: „Back to Mogadishu“


About the project:

Aden’s political activity is a unique testimony to understand the tormented history of Somalia over the last sixty years. Aden has experienced at first hand the Somali dreams, hopes, plans, failures and tragedies, following the end of colonization until the civil war and the Diaspora . His books are an asset not only for Somali people who want to know about their history from the point of view a reliable character, but also for scholars who are seeking for an essential source of knowledge. The absence of international editions of these books restricts the sharing of such a legacy. Hence the reason for this project aimed at the translation of the two books – so far available only in Italian – and their publication in a single scientific volume
