How to reconcile fact and fantasy? Since the book is dedicated to the legends of Lombardy and deals with the towns and cities of Lombardy, the idea is to present them as they are today by means of photographs, thus making the contrast between reality and imagination something intriguing, seductive, almost conspiratorial. The tales recounted here are curious, salty, appetising, tempting, different. The stories and legends of this collection are the result of painstaking research and the retelling of largely forgotten texts. A journey into the wonderful world of the imagination to better understand the wisdom of popular tradition illustrated by Piero Orlandi's photographs; a real mix of past and present.
