This is the situation similar to that described by the protagonist in Nanni
Ballestrini’s novel We Want Everything. Located primarily in a Fiat factory
in Milan, Italy, the novel is a tale of a young worker from Italy’s rural
south who is enticed into moving to Italy’s rapidly industrializing north
in 1969. Tantalized by advertising and a desire to be “modern,” the
narrator of the novel wishes to break free of the rural, dead-end life of
his parents and the generations before them. Like many of his fellows, he
implicitly understands that not only is that way of life dying; there is
also much better money to be made in the industrial cities of the north.
