PEU

The new book by Mafra Gagliardi, illustrated by Dario Moretti.

It is now available the new book PEU – The Story of a Little Human Being Looking for the Light, written by Mafra Gagliardi, illustrated by Dario Moretti and published by Kuma Edizioni.

PEU is a tiny human being who is going to start his life, safely guarded in the warm and sweet womb of his mother. In every moment of his early existence, PEU becomes conscious of himself, of his growing-up, of the place that protects him, and of the world around him.
His home is a warm soft sac. It is dark but comfortable, and it lets this little human being sense the presence of sounds and living creatures: he can hear the tum-tum, the heart beat of his mother, even when there are other harsher or roaring sounds.
The most familiar sounds are the happy voices of the birds, whose language PEU perfectly understands: the friendly birds chatter about the wonderful world outside the belly, which is becoming narrower and tighter…
They tell of the sun, the sea, of smells and flavors. PEU doesn’t understand all of them yet, but he already likes it.
Above all, the birds tell of a mummy and a daddy, who are longing to be with him.
And so, PEU is finally ready to be born and come into this world, that is surprisingly bright and lively, full of voices and smiles.

Mafra Gagliardi’s refined writing and Dario Moretti’s illustrations create a thoughtful and poetic tale about birth and life, told through the point of view of a Little Human Being coming into the world.

Happiness of a Star in Ravenna

On March, the 4th at 10h30, the show created and performed by Dario Moretti with harpist Alice Caradente will be on stage at the Teatro Alighieri in Ravenna.

Happiness of a Star talks about childhood and children, through their hands, voices, expressions and feelings.
The show is a dance of paint-brushes and pencils gliding on paper.
In the middle of the stage, Dario Moretti is sitting at a big table, full of sheets, colours and brushes: he paints under the public’s eyes, and the images of his drawing are projected live on a screen behind him.
The audience attends to a “concert of images”, that are sometimes sketched, or they constantly changes their shapes and meanings, brushstroke after brushstroke,
They tell little stories about of inspired of children’s everyday life and imagination: a table to lay, some little peebles that change into snails, a trombone sun, a pumpkin cloud, some fine thoughts… The words are rolling, sweeping along the melodies played by an harpist on scene: Alice Caradente.
Happiness of a Star is a tribute to all the children, to their look and amazement.
