How the idea for the story was born?

We were in two different cities and the contest was an occasion to work together on something. It all started as a game of opposites: black and white vs colours, reality vs fantastic, two hands and two different styles mixing.

What's the story about?

Habitat is about the upsetting of a routine. The protagonist, resigned to the greyness of his days, finds in taking care of a little plant the starting point to evade his monotony and to give life to his office, in a dimension suspended between fantasy and reality. Nature is the way for him to bring colours in his everyday life.

Would you like to dedicate it to someone?

To Antonello.


The two authors come from opposite parts of Italy: Laura is from Monza and Giulia is from Cagliari. They met for the first time at the Fine Arts Academy of Brera in Milan, where both were studying scenography. Then, they attended the Scenography Academy of Teatro alla Scala. They developed a friendship but also artistic affinity that brought them to decide to work together.
