“It is a rainy autumn evening and the central train station in Milan is crowded with commuters returning home from work. In the middle of the crowd, as if invisible, eight – ten young foreign adults of different ages move. They are guided by a man in a long coat of imitation tiger fur, it is Sherekhan the child trafficker.
While the group moves towards the exit one of the children runs into the tunnels of the station, his name is Muli and he doesn’t want to be forced by threats of violence to steal and beg for Sherekhan.
Muli’s jungle is the huge central train station, with its structures, dark and damp tunnels, inside which moves a humanity with different rules of survival where the law of the strongest is the main asset. In this wild context, Muli manages to help his friends, finding true friends which help him to stop Sherekhan,”

From an early age I have had a passion for anything on four wheels, a bit like all children.

There are places in the Mediterranean area where the grape harvest continues to have deep roots in the heart of traditions. It is, certainly, one of the emblems of Ischia, with its September days that release all of their charm and beauty: qualities that are indissolubly connected to the folklore and traditions of an island that has never forgotten its connection with the rites of the earth.
It is represented winged in armor with sword or spear with which defeats the devil, under the guise of a dragon. From East to West. The image of Michael the Archangel for both worship and Christian iconography depends on a few passages of the Apocalypse and some of the New Testament.
