This essay draws attention to the letters sent from Japan to Europe by the Jesuit Father Giovanni Matteo Adami who was martyred at Nagasaki on the 22 October 1633 with the terrible martyrdom of the pit (ana tsurushi). The analysis of the documentary legacy which is presented here, together with the reconstruction of the Jesuit path begun by Adami in Rome at the Collegio Massimo, offers a cross-section, in part unexpected, of the great testimony of faith offered by the fathers of the Society of Jesus in one of the most difficult situations experienced by the Jesuits in the history of their missions.
