  • Within the theme of respect for nature, we want to emphasize the fact that pollution involves everyone: the poisoning of the river does not only affect fish, but also involves seagulls.
  • Here the theme of overcoming hatred is not neglected. Oreste – the guardian of the river – must ask his worst enemy for help.
  • And finally, the themes of the generational transition (with the relevance of the imprint of those who are young), of change.
  • Because new problems need to be addressed in a different way from the past and they are asking us to change.

Project realized in collaboration with Ripuliamoci-section of Reggio Emilia.

A text that responds to the call of the 14th Sustainable Development Goal set by the UN in the 2030 Agenda: Life under water.

Profile of the author and illustrator

Valeria Angela Pisi is passionate about children’s books since she was enchanted, at eight, by a book that her parents brought her as a gift from Prague. From this passion some children’s books were born and others may will born.

Nina Limoni as a child always drew, even on Christmas morning. But then, growing up, she couldn’t walk all the way down the color road and found herself opening a laundry. Yet, every now and then, his crazy part still manages to carve out a holiday at the International School of Illustration in Sarmede in which, finally, he returns to immerse himself in a sea of watercolors.
