The well known Sardinian legend of the magic goat who leads a shepherd boy to a treasure had a great influence on Maria Lai’s work. She rewrote it again and again, imagining a different ending. The story in this book comes from a contamination of many different versions and it’s a metaphor of the power of art. Along with the story, the illustrations by Gioia Marchegiani narrate the landscape and the culture of the island. [Text in Italian]
