Maurice Ravel, a virtuoso composer, was born in 1875. Son of a Basque mother and a Swiss father, his artistic production was characterized by the (different) rhythms of these two cultures: the regular ticking of Swiss watches and devices and the frantic and vital dance of the Basque Country. The sophisticated technical complexity as well as the lively variety of instruments and sounds of its compositions are a manifestation of this heritage. Starting from the concrete reality of the war, but with a fantastic metaphorical narrative, writer Lina Maria Ugolini and illustrator Maddi Zumalabe tell us the years of Maurice's military service during the First World War.
