Giordano Poloni, THE ANIMATED WOOD

«The forests and woods and riverbanks produce hardwoods of various qualities, suitable for building and many other uses, and also the indispensable firewood: such is the abundance of firewood that in the city alone it is absolutely certain that more than fifty thousand wagons are burned each year».

Giordano Poloni created a cartoon to narrate the theme of the wood that the city continually supplies and that comes to it from the surrounding forests, transported along the waterways. The result was a narrative with a strong visual impact, nourished by clear references to the history of art, particularly Henri Rousseau, and in which every detail shows care and richness.
