Ceriano family. From left to right: Sabino, Emilio, Leocadie and Carla. Leocadie and her son Sabino arrived in Italy from the Ivory Coast more than 15 years ago. After a few years, Leocadie began working at the Villeneuve school canteen where she met Emilio. Leocadie recalls that, at first, it wasn’t easy to live in Villeneuve, but today she feels well accepted and a full member of the town. For Emilio (of ‘distant’ Piedmont origins) there are two types of human beings: Homo sapiens and Homo erectus. The first is curious, wants to know about and is able to accept others; the second simply stands without thinking. The marriage between Emilio and Leocadie has created problems among Emilio’s relatives.
