La Città delle Mollette


Editotial news

This is the story of a population all the same, but so much so that they can’t distinguish themselves from each other that they can barely stand where all places are the same and are named the same, where diversity is not even conceived. Where quarrels, brawls and bad mood are the main feature of every inhabitant.

And who can save that world without colors and without history?

  • The main theme of this story is diversity as opposed to Homologation: if everything is equal, everything is already provided, there is nothing worth knowing. A poor life that leads to the most comical paradoxes (like hundreds of phones that call all the inhabitants of the city at the same time, and clocks that always mark 1) does not create possibilities for individual growth.
  • The pedagogical experience of the author that, also through writing, makes that words like identity, inclusiveness, values, tolerance, solidarity come to the understanding of children.
  • The illustrations, which bring with them the expressive power of children’s theater, appear as real sets that make the story material.
