From the rear side cover: Foiano Di Valfortore, a backwater in the Italian province of Benevento, where men toil in fields on picturesque hillsides to eek out a living. Oldbury, in the heart of the Black Country, where men toiled night and day in smoky factories to maintain the post war boom.

Echoes of Foiano Di Valfortore tells of Guido Guidotti's journey from the rolling hills of his forefathers to the rolling mills of the Black Country, a region which at first seem satanic, but will ulti­mately become a new home and provide a new life for his family.

The Black Country, formed and forged over two centuries by the de­termination of families from th'off to come in and work in the indus­tries. Top Black Country poet Billy Spakemonjoins Guido's son, Angelo Guidotti to tell a tale of Black Country Italians, proud of their new land but for whom, there will always be Echoes of F oiano Di Valfor­tore
