El Edition, 2006 – illustrated by Gabriella Giandelli

A summer with yellow snow, an uncultivated and negleted space, a stretch of asphalt “as empty as a desert” called square and a bulding that refills itself whit its inhabitants only in the evening. One day, under the only green bush of the area, Danilo, the chief character, find Gorgius.

“Just imagine… It’s hard to describe, not becouse I don’t remember it, but because thinking over it after a long time it seems even more crazy… almost impossible… Yet it’s true, it’s all true, because it happened to me… And things might not be true until they happen to you, but after?
What is Gorgius ? And how much is it dangerous?
