I watched two movies from Pirouettte interviews recently and I really liked them : The boy with the stripes pyjamas (Thanks Jenny Dalton) and Last train home (Thanks Lisa Wong). Today it’s my turn to recommend a movie : The Tree (Julie Bertuccelli, 2010). I watched it last night and I woke up with the images stuck in my head. The little Morgana Davies is very inspiring and the tree’s magic reminds a bit of Tim Walker with its octopus shape and little colorful lights.

If you like recycled wood, you’ll love Alicuccio’s furniture and toys. The young Sicilian artist graduated in sculpture at the Academy of fine arts, Catania. For him the concept of waste doesn’t exist in nature. Everything can have a second life. Like his chairs made and assembled only with pieces and material he found in the streets of Turin where he lives.
Alicucio will be part of KidsXMASzoom, an event created by Paola Noe (KidsroomZOOM).
