In the imagination of children, the night is perhaps the first of the big mysteries of life. The shadows, the dark, the silence, the noises in the street and the movements inside the house prompt fanciful thought, many fears, a little fascination. Grounded in a work developed with schools in several stages of its creation, Nocturno inspires itself in many possible nights — in the village and in he city, in the open or inside improbable shelters. Different sounds and experiences, with or without stars, but always under the same dark sky.
