Giacomo is currently working also as illustrator. The images come from the book for children “I mostri d’aria” (Air Monsters) by Giacomo Agnetti and Mario Ferraguti. The air monsters are the Nature keepers, they made things happen. Monsters do many things: some of them move the fog from valleys, other help aeroplanes to flight, some bends rainbows. All of them want to be invisible.
