The circus of the dwarf and the bearded lady

What does it happen when a dwarf and a bearded woman meet and get married? They start a family and even a circus. 11 children different from each other, nobody obviously “normal”: there are those who are tiny, the one who has a huge ear, the other who has two heads and the deaf one. There is also Pompeo, that does not exist but everyone pretends to be there. A peculiar family that sets up an amazing circus, where diversity becomes an added value. The Circus of the Dwarf and the Bearded Woman is a gallery of these characters’ bizarre portraits, where oddities are put on display and shame does not exist. The latest picturebook by Fausto Gilberti deals with diversity - and related difficulties - without honeycomb or pietism, with light and intelligent irony.

 

Fausto Gilberti is an artist. He is a slim little man, with big and bewildered eyes, a static and flat body, a surprised and forbidden look. His ideal place is the kitchen, where he draws day and night on a table that was used to make pork salami. Born in Brescia and married to Laura, he has two children: Emma and Martino.
