Synopsis

Set in Gardone, a village lost in the mountains of northern Italy.
At the age of 25, young Sokuro returns to Italy after spending a month in Burkina Faso. During this stay in the land of his ancestors, he married Nassira, a girl from his home village. While waiting for his wife to join him in Italy, Sokuro rediscovers the familiar routine of his small apartment in Gardone, where he lives with his little brother, Nasire, and his sister, Falira, aged 9 and 21. Like them, Sokuro has always lived his daily life as a foreigner in a land that saw him grow up. Through a family chronicle, focused on Sokuro, at a key moment of his life, Une jeunesse italienne outlines the portrait of a youth in search of a land on which to build his own future.
