Kids Magic


” …we can see the world by the eight of a man but also form the eight of a cloud. Reality can be entered through the main door or it can be slipped into through a window – which is much more fun -…” [Gianni Rodari]

Fairy tales are up to mathematics as mathematics are up to fairy tales. They’re up to poetry, to music, to utopia and to political engagement: anyway, to the whole man and not only to the daydream storyteller.

There’s a place where everything can happen: a world owned by curious and mysterious objects going on for incredible magics.

It’s a kids shop in the heart of the old Milano: Lelefante con le ghette. [ the elephant with breeches ]

In collaboration with Simone Fumagalli – Quarchatelier
