It’s carnival time: a mother and his daughter feel like cooking homemade crepes but they don’t have a frying pan... A traditional never-ending story constructed through a text in Italian and Venetian dialect and around the images that appear and are repeated, thus creating a visual “never-ending book”. In conjunction with Andrea Zanzotto’s 90th birthday, Corraini Edizioni pays a tribute to the poet from Pieve di Soligo by reprinting the book ”La storia dello Zio Tonto o del Barba Zhucon”. Published for the first time in 1997, this volume was the result of a collaboration between Zanzotto and the venetian artist Marco Nereo Rotelli: a book illustated with blending and crossing images, a rielaboration from a story that belongs to the oral tradition of the Veneto area. During the festival “Un, Due, Tre...Ópla!” that is going to take place in Merano on 18th, 19th and 20th May 2011, an exhibition of the original artworks by Marco Nereo Rotelli for “La storia dello Zio Tonto o del Barba Zhucon” will take place in Merano. Andrea Zanzotto was born in 1921 in Pieve di Soligo, where he still lives. He’s one of the most regarded contemporary Italian poets, and he has also written several literary critical essays and short stories. His works have been translated and published in many languages. Marco Nereo Rotelli was born in Venice in 1955. Cutting edge artist, he developed a personal research: his creations are a mix between painting and poetry. His works are on display in many museums and galleries both in Italy and abroad. He currently lives between Milan and Paris.
