“Beauty with Gold Star” is a story first noted in Sicily in the nineteenth century by Palermitan ethnoantropologist Giuseppe Pitré. It is a fairy tale about a poor, however, a brave boy who decided to set free the enchanted beauty with the gold star and finally win her love too. What no prince, king or marquis could achieve, Peppi achieved after having overcome many ordeals and he finally crowned his dream of love. In 2007 Marcella Brancaforte made illustrations for this text published in the collection of the Editrice Ariana Publishers, edited by Prof. Livio Sossie while Carlo Carzan wrote the new version of the text. The book was nominated for the Andersen Prize and having been pronounced a finalist it was highly praised by the critics and the public.

Workshop participants will be encouraged to make an illustrated board resembling ones used by ancient Sicilian street singers. They will use simple materials: scissors, oil crayons, recycled paper and cardboard and by using them bring to life an old but still actual fairy tale.
