 In their grandparents’ attic, Simone and Elena find an old map of the Royal Palace in Monza…. and so, almost as if it was one of Grandpa’s memories, this is how the story starts. It is set in the beautifully decorated halls and splendid gardens of the Royal Palace in Monza at the end of the 19th Century, and with the help of historical characters, imagination and a little curiosity, the reader discovers a day full of lots of entertaining surprises.
