On October 25th 2014 the 32nd edition of Le immagini della fantasia was inaugurated in Sàrmede (Treviso). The exhibition has always offered a public of enthusiasts and professionals, both young and old, a broad glimpse of the world of children’s illustration, displaying outstanding examples of artistic expression in terms of aesthetic innovation and narrative wealth. Each year La Casa della Fantasia plays host to hundreds of illustrators, authors, publishers and books representing the many aspects of this extraordinary international panorama and confirming the value of the illustrated book as a tool for knowledge and a means of conveying beauty. Extensive research and intense discussion with the sector also give rise to additional display sections, used by the numerous educational programmes to find out How a book is created, meet a Guest of honour and discover Tales from all over the World; so that readers young and old can set off from Sàrmede on other adventures, from book to book. The promotion of passion for illustration and reading, addressing an ever-wider public, is one of the exhibition’s objectives as it journeys tirelessly on. Setting off from the historic first leg of the exhibition in Sàrmede, Le immagini della fantasia has been presented in Venice, Madrid, Aix-en-Provence, Genoa, the Centre Pompidou in Paris, Ljubljana, Bratislava, Lisbon, Salzburg, Seville, Vienna, Istanbul, Stuttgart, Naples, Monza, Siena, Rome, Verona, Florence, Munich, Milan, Vicenza, Honfleur, Sarasota (USA) and Edinburgh.

In the period between May 1915 and November 1917, Friuli Venezia Giulia staged the fights between the Italian and the Austro-Hungarian armies, which faced each other harshly for several months.
Karst, Isonzo area, Julian Alps and Pre-Alps, Carnic Alps and the hilly area along the Tagliamento line were the locations of fights, whereas the whole plain became a large area behind the front line in the service of the armed forces and was later invaded by the Austro-German troops after the defeat of Caporetto (Kobarid).
Today, the signs of those battles can still be seen in various places of the region and are not-to-be-missed destinations if you wish to discover from close up this big event, which changed our history.
Thanks to cart roads and CAI (Italian Alpine Club) paths you can reach the various open-air museums, which feature the remains of the war structures built and used by many soldiers. Following the proposed itinerary, you can go on thrilling walks, often in the middle of breathtaking landscapes, which will make you feel part of the context of life in a trench.
Some of these itineraries have been designed by the various regional associations that deal with the restoration and enhancement of the First World War sites.
