Two sisters, a best friend (maybe a boyfriend?), a small town in the mountains of Italy, a summer of mysterious fires in the hills. Incendi Estivi (Summer Fires) is a story about choices taken and not, sisterhood and growing up during a summer of boredom. Three young kids looking for a pyromaniac will go into the woods, what they find is something more personal.

I started writing the story in 2008, but I didn't start drawing the pages until 2014. You can check out some work in progress of the book on my Tumblr.
