Descriptions, Reviews, &c.

"In every moment of life we have one foot in the fairy tale and the other in the abyss."-Paulo Coehlo

"The echo of a fairy tale, the voices of forgotten objects, childhood photographs, expectations. A microscope focused on the emotions that small things can give you. Microcosm is an intimate dialogue in which composition and improvisation alternate creating an involving and evocative narration."-Alberto Pederneschi website
