Mormolice – La bestia nel bosco addormentato (Mormolice – The beast into the sleeping wood)
In the secret memories of the past, songs of witches tell of a Prince who trapped a wolf and fell in love with it.
A gothic fairy tale. The impossible love story between a lonely prince and a wolf-maiden who came from the wood. The fifteen illustrated tables interact with a short, intense and lyrical text. A fairy tale without a happy ending, but which leads us back to where the human ends and the mystery of wild nature begins. Illustrations and text by the author, with reproductions from graphite originals on paper and digital coloring.
