Giambattista Moroni for Kids

Story, words, illustrations, and design for a kids’ book published by Skira and Gallerie d’Italia.
Giambattista Moroni e il Mistero del Ritratto Perfetto (Giambattista Moroni and the Mystery of the Perfect Portrait) is a short novel about art, unexpected encounters, and embracing one’s uniqueness.

The book is inspired by the life and artistic style of the actual Giovan Battista Moroni — an innovative master of Italian Renaissance painting — with a whimsical and humorous twist. Most notably, it was born to accompany the international exhibition Moroni (1521–1580), on display in the heart of Milan, also serving as an unexpected art catalog and guide for kids.
