  • Facts about Ventotene from the book "The Ventotenesi", by Filomena Gargiulo
  • An excerpt from the book "Once there was a war", by John Steinbeck, a reportage about the war: it tells how a handful of Americans arrived to Ventotene by sea and succeeded with an unplanned¬†trick in kicking the Germans out of the island.
