With the story of Mio and Aoi, Laura Imai Messina guides us through the mesh of a narration becoming gift: the gift of marvel, charm, magic. Le vite nascoste dei colori (Einaudi), with its as imaginative as real style, illustrates the story of an encounter. The encounter between two identities and two frailties that, mingling with one another, become metamorphosis of feelings, emotions, experiences.
