LIZ il trenino dei bambini


Editorial news

The butterflies that Liz felt in his belly were not enough to start the engine. He needed a dream.

Liz, the children’s train, has been parked for years and forgotten on the tracks of the dead track. Akimò is a child who seeks refuge.
The magical story of a friendship born between a migrant boy and a tireless train lover of children is the heart of a story told in respect and enhancement of socio-cultural differences.

That brat didn’t even seem surprised to talk to a train. He already liked him, but he had to understand better who he was dealing with.
«Why are you hiding?» asked Liz.

Akimò, without knowing it, gives Liz the dream to be able to leave one last time.

A journey to learn the values of hospitality. The themes: protection, culture, trust.
