Cesare Battisti - an Italian author and former member of the ultra-left guerrilla group called Armed Proletarians for Communism, which was active in Italy in the 1970s and 1980s - writes his novels and short stories from the vantage point of a ventennial exilic experience in Mexico and France. By looking closely at Battisti's fiction, published in French and Italian,2 this paper examines displacement and exile in the current Italian and European socio-political context.
