Il libro, introdotto da una brillante e godibile prefazione di Paolo Guzzanti-tra i giornalisti più noti e nei primi anni 70 protagonista de “Il Giornale di Calabria”, il primo quotidiano stampato nella regione- non è un monumento all’uomo infallibile, che ha commesso anche errori.
Ma è una carrellata di fatti, non pochi inediti, di tanti scontri politici, di vicende drammatiche, come los angeles “strategia della tensione”, l. a. rivolta di Reggio Calabria, l. a. brutale sostituzione con De Martino al vertice del PSI, il processo kafkiano a Mancini. Da giornalista attento e ironico, Pietro Mancini consegna ai lettori e agli storici l. a. vita, lunga e non facile ma vissuta con passione, fino alla morte, che lo sottrasse al suo ufficio-per Mancini il più gratificante, secondo l’amico Francesco Cossiga-di amatissimo e rimpianto Sindaco di Cosenza.
Secondo l’autore, Giacomo Mancini “ha dato alla politica e al Sud più di quanto abbia ricevuto”. Pietro Mancini concentra los angeles sua analisi anche sui personaggi-big e comparse- della Calabria, della politica, del Sud, del giornalismo del dopo-Giacomo. Giudizi taglienti, con una narrazione tutt’altro che pesante, dalle quale emerge il rimpianto non solo consistent with il padre, affettuoso pur se timido, come il figlio e il nonno, Pietro Mancini senior.
