Notes of the author on the project:

“I am not a great connoisseur of Gianni Rodari’s work. I have never been that found of children’s illustration. But on the occasion of this exhibition, in projecting and then drowing images inspired by Rodari’s literary career, I had the opportunity to read, reread and discover an ageless fantasy. And I discovered how ageless and timeless consciousness is, how unavoidable it is in wanting to tell a story. Then I thought that today Giovannino would have lost the day on the internet instead of traveling; that Little Onion would have found an electoral agreement with Lord Tomato and that on the train, sleeping on the suitcases, there would always be a child, perhaps only of another color. I thought about it but I didn’t draw it. I wanted to tell the time of a timeless author with images, to tell it as I would have liked to have it told when I was as a child. I let myself be carried away by the imagination, because as an adult I discovered I am not afraid of it. Because fantasy is not a bad wolf. ” (translated from Italian)
