Matthias Lehmann talks Alessio Trabacchini of 001 editions.

Fresh from Bilbolbul. Bologna International comic, festival comes at Library MarcoPolo, Matthias Lehmann's favorite, which represents the debut of Matthias Lehmann in Italy.

We meet so Constance, is ten years old, is an orphan and lives locked in a palace with grandparents, two strangers, he alcoholic, her domineering and sadistic. Constance is happy as it can be a ten year old girl locked in a building from which you can not escape: he spends his time around the house and the neighborhood ... But there is something that the reader does not know, is a secret, a great secret, that the main character will have to face. The favorite is a story of discovery and self-discovery.
