This art fairytale dedicated to the imagery and world of the Italian Transavanguardia movement starts with a real narrative between an adult man and a little girl, a book made up of dialogues, questions and answers between Beatrice and Giorgio. In the story, the five protagonists of the movement theorised by Achille Bonito Oliva, enter with the vibrant colours and shapes of their works, providing a pretext for a conversation between generations, triggering elements of new stories, interpretations and exercises of freedom.
Giorgio Guglielmino, born in Genoa in 1957, is an art writer and collector.
Beatrice Carpani, born in 1988, a girl at the time of the book’s publication, was living in Buenos Aires with her family.
