Martino Tales”, from an idea by Nicola Gomirato, is formed by a group of five friends, around whom all the expressions of a life full of curiosity, adventures, moments of reflection, of observation outside and inside ourselves are circling.

The main protagonist is Martino, a child whose age is around eight years old. Martino is an active observer. He wants to know, understand, obtain the knowledge of the subject of his curiosity to then talk about it with someone else, thus elaborating the knowledge.
