VOLATILIS

In his workshop, Leonardo Da Vinci seeks to make his lifelong dream come true: to fly. For this he studies the flight of the birds that he keeps locked in the basement in a large cage. Take one and release it to see how it flutters throughout the studio. Although that is not a place for a creature that has been born free. Open the window and let it fly freely. Immediately he will realize that he is alone again in that gloomy laboratory. Distressed, he decides to spend the afternoon researching among the boring books in his library. But the one he chooses turns out to be special.

It tells the story of curious characters similar to flies dressed in a turtleneck sweater and with a nutshell as a helmet. More specifically that of one of them, who has to endure the ridicule of his companions for having shorter wings and not being able to lift the flight more than two feet from the ground. Between laughs they try to make it fly in a multitude of ways, until the unexpected happens. Not knowing how the fly has left the book and has gone crashing against Leonardo’s bookstore.
