I have scel to design a handle that is strictly didactic. That you tell a story, an adventure for children, and that it is therefore immediately understandable and very easy to read, designed as if it were made with the constructions I play with children. I imagined a street, via Sassoverdand at night in the dark only illuminated by a few lampposts in which the door to the institute is opened Thevenin from which a light beam is strongly emitted,a light that turns into hope for the peaksli and a reference for the whole city. A beacon of solidarity in the darkness of life. A cone of light that cuts through the night and in which stands the figure of a mother with two children getting ready to enterto light, within the door of the Institute.
