The next 23th April in Naples, we will meet together at Mario Natangelo in an appointment not to be missed at the Sala Assoli of the Iocisto library. In this special evening, Natangelo will guide us through the pages of his new book "Ash“, a work that combines pain and satire in a deeply human and surprisingly funny mix.

The book Ashes, mourning and comedy

"Ash" it is not just a book, but an emotional and intellectual journey that Natangelo he decided to share with his audience. After the loss of the mother, the cartoonist transformed his pain into art, using his sharpest weapon: the irony.

Natangelo's work unfolds through a series of cartoons e boards which tell of his daily life overturned, not only by personal tragedy but also by a bizarre mix of work events. With a balance between comedy e tragedy, Natangelo manages to explore the theme of mourning in a unique way, showing how, sometimes, laughter can be a real panacea for the soul.

Every time I drew a satirical cartoon about some misfortune in which deaths occurred, the idiot always came to shout indignantly: 'what if one of your family members had died? Would you have made a cartoon about it?'. Well, now I can answer this question and the answer is this book.
