Il roseto di re Laurino
Have you ever wondered why the peaks of the Dolomites turn pink at sunrise and sunset? The answer to this phenomenon – the alpenglow, or enrosadira – may lie in the story of King Laurin and the great rose garden that surrounds his castle among the mountain peaks. There are many versions of the legend: here we offer it in our own reinterpretation, with illustrations by Giorgia Pallaoro, and including a collector's stamp dedicated to the Dolomites.
First issue of the Storie in Viaggio (Travelling Tales) series.
A series of illustrated books to explore Italy in a new way drawing inspiration from stamps, in search of stories and legends to share beyond the local dimension. In just a few square centimeters, the stamp encloses a story that travels and becomes a collective heritage: hence the idea of a series of small books to collect and send, to rediscover places we are familiar with or discover new ones, each time inspired by a different stamp.
