Italianisms is an illustrated book of some of the most common and funny italian sayings. Since I have lived in US I have always been interested in the differences and peculiarities between my language italian and the english. Many times I have noticed that to get a massage across I would like to use an italian expression but I figured it would probably sound nonsense if not completely awkward! The book comes from the desire to open these famous italian expressions to the non-italian speakers to explain why we use those words and in which contest. By translating each saying into an illustration, and creating something beautiful to look at, I wanted to emphasize their unique peculiarities and ultimately challenge the reader’s fantasy.
