This is a book anthology (available in Italian only) of ten intense stories which tell the art topic in different and personal ways. The stories have been shortlisted for the Premio città di Barletta. My story is called Le Nozze Rosse (The Bloody Wedding) and talks about a sad and gory wedding happend in the Medieval Perugia (Umbria, Italy). The great maestro Raffaello Sanzio took inspiration from this story to pain the famous Pala Baglioni.
I took inspiration from Raffaello in turn to use a very particular point of view to narrate the bloody wedding as well as a guest main character, very popular among Medieval society of Perugia.
