Vispo tocca la luna (Fantura - Fantasia di natura)

Adventure in Gran Sasso e Monti della Laga National Park

This is the adventure of a young cockroach who loves the Moon and freedom. The centuries-old trees have been telling this tale to the mushrooms of the undergrowth since ancient times.
If you want to listen to it, it is enough to walk in the forest and lean your antennas on the barks.

The characters:

Vispo (cockroach):
very shy, he is attracted by stones and natural sciences, has a bookshop, talks of the time passing by following the moon stages, eats detritus, and considers snail slime a delicacy.
Tarlo Pallottola: scientist, photographer, very cold and quiet, courageous and honest, he will become Vispo's best friend. He loves humidity, and grazes across the decomposing vegetation.
Ombrina Cartoccio (spectacled salamander): very sweet, she likes Vispo very much. She is romantic and rather ingenuous, loves the water of the torrents and, if necessary, defends herself with grit.
Otto (platypus): strong and courageous warrior, he does not fear anything, and gets tough in everything he does.
Polline (solitary bee): very good at flying, he collects great quantities of nectar in strong pouches, eats very hard pollen pieces, follows night autumn routes watching the constellations. He is a solitary bee.
