Adua, the latest novel by Igiaba Scego (Florence: Giunti, 2015) is followed by an afterword of the author, in which she states, with reference to her and to Gamey Guilavogui: «Even if they are modern actresses, they must face one star system that is still riding at anchor in old stereotypes. Nevertheless they are strong women and they do not succumb. In a certain sense, Adua is dedicated to them who managed to have a different destiny compared to that of the protagonist of this book. Esther and Gamey are fighters and if cinema (but also theater) in Italy will change it will happen thanks to people like them».
