The wind wakes up one day in a bad mood and blows, sweeping everything away. He is angry, but sometimes anger is necessary for everything to change and be renewed.

The wind wakes up one day in a bad mood and blows, sweeping away everything. Hats fly, the world around is transformed, there are those who are disappointed and those who, instead, seize new possibilities in a colorful detail in an unexpected place.
The wind is an illustrated book by Alessandro Riccioni and Simone Rea to tell the story of anger, an emotion sometimes necessary for everything to change and renew itself.
