Io sono Alice (My name is Alice)

Io sono Alice (My name is Alice)


What if books came to life, could speak, laugh and argue just like us?

A refreshingly ironic adventure story in a (delicate) balance between fact and fiction.

What happens when the doors of the Ariosto libraryare shut, the lights go off and silence falls on thereading room? Well, it’s obvious: the books stoppretending they’re not alive, they flap their pagesand get together as a group. Yes, you’ve got it, bookscan talk, they’re alive and… you’ll be surprised tohear, while we read them, they’re reading us. Thishappens to Alice (in Wonderland) when she ends upin the hands of avid reader and aspiring young writerMichele Pepe, then Nina Specchi who is grapplingwith her first novel to illustrate so she can pass theyear at school. Both leave objects of value amongthe pages of the book but when they go back to thelibrary to find them, they discover that Alice hasgone. Has someone borrowed her? No, worse thanthat: she was kidnapped!
