Guido Quarzo is from Torino, where he was born in 1948, and where he still lives and works. For many years he taught Primary School which he gave up in 1999 in order to write full time. When a child he had the fortune to have an aunt that would tell him every evening fairytales from the traditions of Piedmont. And he is still bond with fairytales, even though he turns them around and around, twists them and makes them say deepest things, almost for "grown-ups".
