Worm | My friend Walter
Noemi Vola, the author of Sulla vita sfortunata dei vermi [On the Unfortunate Life of Worms], is the ultimate expert when it comes to the characteristics, habits, and adventures of worms (not to be confused with caterpillars!). As well as studying them in depth and drawing them on paper, she has also modelled some of them in ceramic, experimenting with this material for the first time to create a small collection of unique pieces.
