What happened to Ovid? | the poet of the metamorphoses in all its modernity

The contest about the development of a comic book with an open ending inspired by the Poet of Sulmona has been launched. Participants are kids between 15 and 25 years.

As part of the project Draws love, myths and other stories of Ovid, presented during the book fair 'Più libri più liberi',  the challenge is a success to tell the story of the comic book Metamorphosis - Ovid , the form of obscurity written by Emanuele Bissattini and Luigi Politano, drawings by Mario Schiano edited by Mirko Zilahy. The project includes a comic book, a challenge and a workshop.

The initiative of the laboratory is very beautiful. To help artists to better interpret ideas to stimulate creativity, together with experts of the sector, there will be a contribution from 7 to 13 January 2019 to support the development of the project. Workshops will be writing lessons, drawings and copyright, useful to protect both projects and ideas. All the information to register for the laboratories can be found on the website of the Scuderie del Quirinale site, Racconta e Disegna section.

Selection process and press
A jury of experts, on January 18th, will choose the first 5 best works.
