Gina is good at telling stories. She tells them to her children in their winter nights: stories of when she was a child. Like that time when she was eight and walked all the way to Florence across the Apennines with her mom, who had found her a job. A great adventure in hard times, with bombing going on, German soldiers, and the risk of getting lost. Antonella Toffolo made a comic out of this story she’d heard from her mother: the epic of a childhood seen through the sharp, poetic touch of her art style. [Text in Italian]
A book for:
