Everyone remembers at least a few books from childhood that led them to the wonderful world of colourful stories and characters. Moved by the adventures of the protagonists, we often tried to experience them in real life. Children’s imagination can transform even the most ordinary places into a stage of bookish adventures. Following this trail, we want to show how, thanks to the power of literature and imagination even the most neglected streets, yards or squares can transform into the most exotic countries, into places of meeting with the immortal literary characters. The appeareance of these characters in the city space is an invitation to reading books. Every year, we make new adventures happen. This year, we have welcomes the wizard of Oz, Dorothy, Tin man, Scarecrow and the lion. Come and See / Yard by the House of Words.
