The book targets revalorizing the patrimony of Bonifacio: the multifaceted singularity of its history, culture, language (the Bonifician language, similar to Genovese) and geography (including natural reserves). It speaks also about its dilemma: despite being the most visited city in Corsica (mostly summer tourism), its population is diminishing due to lack of infrastructure, shortness of its touristic seasonality and lack of job opportunities for its youth. At the end, Toussain Sorba, one of the writers, presents the community policy for a better future for Bonifacio.
Under a chapter dedicated to culture, famous local poems and proverbs are presented and even famous local culinary recipes.
