MEDHELAN - The fabulous story of a land
MEDHELAN was Milan's original Celtic name and it meant "sacred city." The graphic novel recounts, with an immediate and compelling style, the history of Milan and
its land from the foundation by the Celts to the present day. In addition to the human characters of factual history, the events are narrated by animals
and plants of the region, which find their natural habitat in the forest.
The narrative perspective is therefore that of the Great Forest of the Po Valley, the natural environment which has characterized Milan and its inhabitants
for 2.500 years and of which Parco Nord Milano is now the renewed fragment and a shining example of how to "feed the planet".
The graphic novel
Published in Italian by Star Comics Publishing, the work is available in five
languages (Italian, English, French, Spanish, German and Portuguese) in the e-book version (translations by Fondazione Milano Lingue).
