At 6am, at the Mediateca del Mediterraneo in via Mameli, you can make a journey that begins in 1992 with Elizabeth Sprayliz, teenage high school student with passion for graffiti, and arrives in 2016 with Dragonero and the adventures of Ian Aranill, a dragon hunter: on this day, you can meet Luca Enoch, Italian comics artist.


November 25th

From 10am to 1pm, at the Mediateca del Mediterraneo in via Mameli, there will be a debate on the female imaginary with journalist Ornella Demuru, Assia Petricelli and Sergio Riccardi (authors of Cattive ragazze – 15 storie di donne audaci e creative, a graphic novel), Luca Enoch, Silvana Maniscalco (chairwoman of Ceteris, an anti-violence against woman center), Federica Ginesu (journalist).
