The future is here

with Manuele Fior, Frederik Peeters

chair Nicolò Porcelluzzi

A mysterious extrasensory experience which makes mankind leap forward, waking up with no memories in a planet that hides a funny substance, a crepuscular enclave surrounded by waters, a daring escape to the edges of the universe as we know it… With different sensibilities and styles, Manuele Fior and Frederik Peeters have both explored a future that looks ever closer, redefining the genre fiction of comics and bringing sci-fi back in the spotlight.

Uno e molti

with David Marchetti

chair Manuele Fior

From a generative darkness a cave slowly emerges. From the soil of the cave a flower blooms. And from the flower creatures are born. Individual and collective, bodies that merge and define themselves in an ongoing dance which is music and joy, angst and harmony, affirmation of being. We go out the cave and here starts the journey, the growth, the death, the ascension… David Marchetti’s literary debut is a dense and ethereal book, a philosophical exploration and a visual metaphor of rare harmony.
