Cosa c’è in soffitta? (What’s in the Attic?)

Cosa c’è in soffitta? (What’s in the Attic?)

Record player, coffee grinder, bedwarmer, inkwell… Strange words, just like the ancient and mysterious objects Chiara discovers during a holiday at her grandmother’s house. ‘What’s this?’ and ‘What’s it for?’, the little girl asks, listening to her grandmother’s playful rhymes: she discovers that once upon a time the iron was heated with embers, or that to go to the bathroom you had to leave the house! And who knows, maybe an old typewriter will make her want to recount her discoveries…

A book capable of arousing the nostalgia of the adult reader and the curiosity of children.

Illustrations by Chiara Bolometti. With a diploma in set design from the Brera Academy of Fine Arts, she has always worked with images in a historic Brescian company for découpage and stencil illustrations, as well as being an interior decorator.
