This is the story of a long journey whose aim was to find a way to restore an imagination to all those children who watch too much television. Inspired by the tradition of the Tuscan Befana [an old woman who delivers gifts to children throughout Italy on the eve before Epiphany, 5th January] and freely integrated with references to various regional Italian and European folklore.

Especially in Tuscany, the Befana is not depicted as flying on a broomstick as she is in some northern European countries. Instead she is seen riding a donkey and accompanied by two faithful advisors: a black cat and a white hen.
