About me: PhD in Psychiatry (Karolinska Institutet) and Professor Emeritus of Public Health Sciences / Epidemiology engaged in the public Swedish debate (media and blog), mainly on issues of human rights to free opinion and communication, and on epidemiological aspects in mental health. Research publications mainly from my time at Harvard Medical School, as Research Fellow/Lecturer in Social Medicine.
Born in Chile of Italian descent (Ferrada and De Noli are families and parishes at Genova province in Liguria, Ferrada de Moconesi and Noli parish in Serra Ricco), I have for political reasons lived most of my life in exile, mainly in Sweden and Italy. I am also an artist, write some, and at present I live most of the time in Italy – land of my De Noli ancestors . Further biographic details found here, and here.
About Lotta Continua:
In a given moment of your life, by and large in your younger years, you take that kind of ethical choice which will determine the rest of your entirely life. If your decision is pure at hearth, you get into a non-reversal commitment never possible afterwards to surrender. You can not change the past and thus you have to change the future. You can not forget, but you can try to understand. Summing up, Lotta Continua is a one-way voyage in a war-train with nameless destiny, of battles with no mercy, and with no return.
