A silent book that deals in a poetic, strong and
original way with one of the most complex issues of our day: 
the illegal immigration. A little kid and his journey across the sea. 
His story told through engaging images, is actually the same story of
lots of people forced to leave their country. A journey to talk about
hope, war, hospitality, human rights. 
A little story enclosed in a shell that the protagonist 
will share with another kid, 
on an Italian beach.

Text and illustrations: Paola Formica

Imaginary Museum

A new book dedicated to the museum as a place to get to know life. A picture book to discover a museum that goes beyond the physical space and becomes the set of what each of us want to collect, preserve and share with others. An incredible journey through poetic paintings made of words, characters, emotions, places, objects and passions. 
An “Imaginary Museum” as the deepest expression of what’s more valuable for each one, a kind of gift to be shared with others. 
A new idea of museum that opens up new possibilities, that each player can freely imagine.
