La storia dello Zio Tonto
La storia del Barba Zhucon
It’s carnival time: a mother and his daughter feel like cooking homemade crepes but they don’t have a frying pan... A traditional never-ending story constructed through a text in Italian and Venetian dialect and around the images that appear and are repeated, thus creating a visual “never-ending book”.
Published for the first time in 1997, this volume was the result of a collaboration between Andrea Zanzotto and the venetian artist Marco Nereo Rotelli: a book illustated with blending and crossing images, a rielaboration from a story that belongs to the oral tradition of the Veneto area.
