A long, longtime ago, there was an emperor with a terrible passion for new and expensive clothes; he would spend all his money in luxurious garments and decoration. He didn't care about soldiers, theatre or travelling through his empire, all he was interested in was showing off the most fashionable outfits. He had one for each time of the day and would spend most of his life in his wardrobe. The famous tale by Hans Christian Andersen about the foolish and hypocritical nature of power is finely illustrated by Albertine in a brand new translation by Daniela Iride Murgia. [Text in Italian]
A book for:
