This is the story of Ruggero, a child who had a tough start in life, with a violent and drunkard father. Only shut mouths when Ruggero is around: he was not allowed to smile. But the young boy reacts to the situation, rescued by his friends’ affection, his neighbours’, a new father-trainer and by Elena’s love. Then a draft of wind, a doubt and a certainty force Elena and Ruggero into a scary and exciting vortex… just like life is.
Almost a painful and at the same time magic novel of education, from which its own author got inspired for the theatrical version of Bianco su Bianco. From its world première in Bellinzona (Switzerland) in 2014, the show has been seen by 22’000 spectators in 5 languages.
