Someone has reviewed me in the United States


Dear friends, today I learned that on April 24, just a month ago, an enthusiastic reader of my book published in English, Rosario Livatino – Justice requires love wrote a beautiful review on Amazon. I want to share it with you.

“I recently came to know of Blessed Rosario Livatino since I am working in the legal field and found him very relatable and inspirational. I am not Italian so this is by far, the only English book I can find. Yet, I am really happen with how this book paints his life in words. The author even included a chapter explaining the rise of the mafia in order to give us a better understanding of the context that Blessed Rosario Livatino lived in and how that affected him and the people of his town… I know have a better insight on the life of Blessed Martyr and his inspiration and heavenly intercession has greatly helped me in my life as well.
Thank you to the author Maria Amata Di Lorenzo! You have done a great service in your work! Thank you all the way from the Philippines…”
❤ Thank you, my dear reader Shirz! ❤




My name is Maria Amata Di Lorenzo. I am Italian, from Rome. I have written books that have been distributed to date in nine languages ​​and creative works for radio, film and theater. I have worked for over twenty years as a journalist and as an author and editorial consultant, and have led creative writing courses.

I love to create stories that I like to tell in words and pictures. Have you read any of my works? I call them “the works of my heart” because they are books that are born from my soul.

Two of my books will soon be published in English: Teresa of Calcutta – The Novel of a Soul; Rosario Livatino – Justice Requires Love. This book tells the story of Judge Rosario Livatino, killed by the Mafia in Sicily in 1990, and will be published in English, French, and Spanish, as well as in Italian.

In order to give your soul spaces for reflection and beauty, I opened my site, Amata for you, and my blog: “The place of sensitive souls“. I opened this place on the web to build bridges of friendship. In Italian, you can read my blog here:
