The concept

In the scenery of the enchanted forest, where numerous fairy tales begin, we find a hostile nature towards the wicked ones but generous with teachings and offering protection to pure souls, like those of children. It is the place where you get lost even if inside, thanks to the wise trees, you will always find the courage to go forward in the story.
