Four women in the lockdown: a tale that unfolds along the banks of a river.

“La Favola del Crèmera”

-The Cremera Fairytale, 37 kilometers of magic- is a book for both adults and children.

Younger kids can be accompanied in the reading by their parents. The book is a sincere reflection about Nature and a hymn to the environment as a sacred place. Two little girls become, during the 2020 lockdown, witnesses of something unique, magical, but also real, and they find themselves walking in magnificent past times and getting in touch with historical events.
The tale is not only an environmental manifesto but also a vision of the future starting from the past. Written by 4 women and illustrated by both adult and young painters, it is a female choral book that represents a journey with many destinations.
The proceeds of the sale of the book will be donated to cultural and social associations that are involved in the defense or territory, artistic heritage and children. The tale is animated by Nature, with the aim of respecting and protecting it, and by the value of friendship. All the messages contained in the book are strengthened by brief explanations at the end of each chapter.
The forced lockdown has been the starting point for writing about Formello village, its beautiful surroundings and the life along the banks of the river Crèmera, which have all become such enchanted places thanks to the absence of people. In fact, guided by a little magical lark, the girls will discover that around there are only animals left to guard Nature, and they will enjoy this experience alone, with only their pure and innocent children’s eyes and heart.
