With its corruption, greed and anti-Semitism, the fall of Fascist Italy was unrelentingly violent, but for the partisan women it was also a time of camaraderie and equality, pride and optimism. When the Nazis occupied, they rose to action in multiple small ways, such as hiding deserting soldiers of the Italian Army, striking in factories.

The resistance forces in Italy tried to accelerate the German withdrawal while protecting their own. A House in the Mountains is the inspiring story of the women who helped liberate Italy from Fascism.

But apart from admiring the structure and panoramic views from a stomach-churning height, there is little to see. The author describes scenes of women standing together at the funerals of those who gave their lives for the cause, strong and their determination to show up un force, even as the occupier’s machine guns were pointed towards them.

An acclaimed biographer of Martha Gellhorn, Bertrand Russell, and Lucie de la Tour du Pin, among others, Moorehead has also written for the Telegraph, the Times, and the Independent. The transitions back and forth between the lives of the women she profiles to the progress of the war are much better.As always, it is amazing what people lived through and I am reminded how fortunate to be living in a country with no recent wars on our homeland. Moorhead deserves all the credit in the world for keeping the facts of that heroic effort in play, especially at a time when fascism raises its putrid head in America and other democracies. The interior features larch panelling and aged oak beams and the living room on the ground floor has a large stone and carved wood fireplace.

This Sydney, Australia house design features a massive sliding glass wall that lets natural light flood the space.

E una volta in più, la tristezza di essere consapevoli che in Italia cambia tutto per non cambiare niente.
