L'ombrello giallo

L'ombrello giallo
The uncommon and complementary skills of the two authors of this book, the writer Joel Franz Rosell and the illustrator Giulia Frances Campolmi, open the doors to a monotonous city, inhabited by bored people. In this grey world in an umbrella factory (all rigorously of dark colours), a workman decides, with a furtive and important action, to make a very special one: he makes a yellow umbrella. But, as the nature of this colour looks unusual, no customer wants to buy it. The dream of the yellow umbrella to finally get wet under a downpour - what better ambition for an umbrella? - seems to be more and more unlikely when it is exposed in the discounted products' shop window of a department store. Until it happens something that the umbrella could have never imagined.

The yellow umbrella becomes the true protagonist of the story thanks to the tables of the Master graduate, all based on delicate variations of grey tones and rhythms and pauses able to realize the desire of the workman who wanted that very special umbrella to be “as a small sun that shines in the middle of the rain”.
