Publications of students
An original formula and a constant commitment have made Ars in Fabula Master an avant-garde course in the international sphere in the artistic and professional training for the publishing. In recent years the Master has given many results with several dozen of published books; a success also confirmed by the continuation of all partnerships between our graduates and their publishers after their debut book. With a hint of pride we like saying that ... our history is written in your books.
Written by the scottish narrator Ali Smith and illustrated by the Master graduate Laura Paoletti, “Antigone” is the adaptation for young readers of the namesake tragedy of Sofocle published in 2011 by the Editorial Group L'Espresso Repubblica in the collection “Save the Story”.
The texts and illustrations of this book tell us the story of Colabrodo, a child who has got a lot of holes that let anything pass through him. This work is the thesis project of our Master graduate Alfonsina Ciculi, based on the texts of the writer Arianna Giorgia Bonazzi and published by Rizzoli.
“Il trionfo dello zero” was published for the first time in the series “Filastrocche in cielo e in terra”, written by Gianni Rodari in 1960. Today the prestigious publishing house for children, founded by Rosellina Archinto, with whom artists like Bruno Munari, Enzo and Iela Mari, Leo Lionni have collaborated, offers this text as a picture book with the illustrations of our Master graduate Elena del Vento.
Marco Lorenzetti, who graduated from the Master Ars in Fabula per l'Illustrazione Editoriale, published his first three works at a short distance one from another. For the collection “Save the Story”, edited by the Editorial Group L'Espresso Repubblica, he made the illustrations for “Gilgamesh” and “I Promessi Sposi”. With Gallucci Editore he published “Il topo e la montagna”, a fairy tale written by Antonio Gramsci during the imprisonment and dedicated to his son.
In 2010 the publishing house Rizzoli published “Io credo agli unicorni”, the story of Tomas Porec, a child who loves nature but doesn't like reading very much. Written by Michael Morpurgo this book, edited for the first time in 2006, is the Master thesis project by Marco Lafirenza.
