Pacunaímba  – L’avventuroso viaggio
di Santo Emanuele

Michele D’Ignazio

Book design for young adult literature

From the author of Storia di una matita, a magical and visionary novel that weaves poetry and comedy and gives us the story of an extraordinary journey from a southern Italy suspended between sky and sea to a wild and seductive Brazil.

The title is inspired by a 1928 novel by Màrio De Andrade, Macunaíma.
