About this project

"The biggest man in the world" is an illustrated tale for young and old. The first edition, in Italian and English with illustrations by the author, was released in 2013 thanks to Feltrinelli's "ilmiolibro" (mybook) program.  

The Biggest Project stems from the desire to create a second edition of the tale. A new version... somewhat "bigger" and somewhat more special. 

It's the result of a boundless and spontaneous collaboration of over 70 people from all over the world

32 different illustrators, young and talented artists from various countries around the globe, have illustrated the story without knowledge of the works of the others, creating 32 works of art.  

32 people among professional and voluntary native speakers, have translated and interpreted the tale, breathing new life into it.  

1 unique volume that unites 32 different versions, for a total of over 100 original illustrations.

A project that celebrates the cross-cultural tendencies of our time, intended to stimulate the coexistence of differences as an element of richness, and the importance of these peculiarities in reaching a common goal.  

A fantastic experience for all those who have participated and a joy for me, having been able to enjoy the enthusiasm of all those involved.  

"The biggest man in the world"  

A story of an encounter, part real-life, part fabricated, between two characters from different worlds. A brief period in their lives, too diverse to continue together. It will be this encounter however, that will forever change their view of things.

Details

Risks and challenges

These books are complete and ready for print. As creator/author I put together the best team I could find, one that is committed to the success and completion of the project.

During production many obstacles can appear. We approach the project as we do life and find a way to overcome these challenges. This is the biggest single project I have undertaken so far but after 1 year of working on it, I am fully committed to its success and fulfilling rewards.

We are committed to creating a high-quality product for you to enjoy. We will keep everyone updated on our progress and will distribute the books as soon as they're ready. If for any reason the project is delayed, you will be notified immediately.

That said, we expect all books and prints to be delivered before The End of 2016.
