IL VINCITORE / THE WINNER
(Giada Franceschelli + Luca Tellurio)
"The authors have well interpreted the theme by cleverly using the dimension of the leporello, which becomes an overview of a passing subway car full of characters and micro-stories just mentioned but sufficiently intriguing to invite the reader to fantasize about what is happened before and what will happen next. The authors have a beautiful style, which winks at the past but is also perfectly contemporary".
MENZIONE DELLA GIURIA / MENTION OF HONOR BY THE JURY
Been there, done that
"For the originality of the composition, where the reader must follow with his eyes, as on a Formula1 track, the car, turning and turning the leporello, reading the texts of a vaguely disturbing and endless story that intertwines on itself.
It looks like a nightmare from a 1960s newspaper of an alternative dimension to ours".

"Simone Razzano has creatively exploited the format of the leporello and tells us a dream in which we have to search for the objects and will not discover them at first sight. The design and color harmonious, and the story leaves room for imagination and still manages to tell a coherent moment and story."

Alessandro Ripane's work struck us for the interpretation of the format for the purposes of narration: in order to understand the story of The Cheater, the author forces us to do a double reading, from right to left and from left to right. The noir atmosphere, the details hidden in the pages, the dystonic chromatic combination, all these elements wonderfully combined have kidnapped us and transported us to an "elsewhere" made of individuals and surreal circumstances.

We invited illustrators, artists, cartoonists, and graphic designers to create an unpublished work that can be printed in limited edition on a folding book (Leporello) with the following characteristics:
6 sides min. and 10 sides max.
The whole sheet measures 87cm (base) by 15cm (height)
The proposals had to interpret the dual feature of this editorial format, which can be both leafed through as a book and opened and enjoyed as a whole
The theme was free but in the representation had to be present
in any form the author deems appropriate.
