Presentation of “Intoccabili” by Valerio La Martire, published by Marsilio Editori
With Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF)
On December 26th 2013, a child got sick in Guinea. This is how the most serious Ebola outbreak started. Roberto, an Italian doctor, decides to leave for a humanitarian aid mission in which he will face terrible things he had never deemed possible, dealing with difficulties and decisions he will remember throughout his entire life.
Intoccabili is the moving witness of a humanitarian aid worker who decided to live, together with many other colleagues, in the areas hit by Ebola.
Valerio La Martire was born in Rome, he volunteered for Greenpeace and worked as a copywriter and editor for several NGOs and humanitarian organizations, like the UNHCR and Médecins Sans Frontières.
