These sentences can be found in Simone Fortiʼs new publication, The Bear in the Mirror – a wonderful collection of stories, prose-poems, drawings, photos, letters, notes and memories.
Simone Forti dives into the (his)stories of her family and of the woollen mills they once owned, trying to put all the myths and fragments of information into some kind of perspective. She takes us on a mind-provoking, mesmerizing journey through time and place, from December 1938 till the present moment, from Italy to Los Angeles.
Along the journey we find ourselves in different cities and in the woods, where we meet her family, bears, dogs and spiders.
& the design by the dearest Nerijus Rimkus
