Something

The princess something too much, from birth, reveals to possess a wonderful, but dangerous feature: she has no limits, she is exaggerated in everything she does. She moves too much, she cries too much, laughs too much and, above all, she wants too much. But when her mother dies, the princess finds himself "a hole instead of the heart". She lost, she takes to wander around the kingdom and then meets the Cavalier Nothing who lives alone on top of a hill and passes all day to "not-do something important". Thank you, even the princess discovers the value of "non-doing". And of silence, imagination, of boredom: everything from which she had always fled. So that, after having made friends with the cavalier, something too rebelled and never to stop and not to feel the unbearable "nostalgia of anything" that the persecuted lives many, too many adventures ... up to A mysterious pistachio temple and understand that "it is the pure fact of being in the world the real adventure". Chiara Gamberale focuses on the risk that we will want to obsessively fill our lives, instead of dealing with who we are and what we want. Thanks to a dreamy and amused tone, and at the surreal touch of the drawings of thunder combed, "something" helps us thus defend ourselves from too much. But above all, she invites us to make peace with nothing.
