An experience of extreme value is born from the union of great artists. The Incontri series aims to bring together the knowledge of different authors to explore their creativity and the excursus of their different stories.

In this second volume of the Incontri series, we recount the friendship of the Sicilian triad of Gesualdo Bufalino, Vincenzo Consolo and Leonardo Sciascia, through the memories and shots of photographer Giuseppe Leone. A narration of different lives, united by art and literature in the first place and by a strong bond, illustrated and counted with episodes, moments, anecdotes and photographs.
