Discovering that to help him go back, to an ancient curse thrown exactly a thousand years before, in the Gravina of Massafra. "The star you want" is a fairy tale where you will meet sacred deer and warrior women, steel panoramas and runical powers, witches and mascariums, a Christmas fantasy that agrees all, young and old, because everyone will find in these pages the sense of a different Christmas, a southern and pagan sacredness.
