SERGIO BONELLI EDITOR
THE ROADS OF HUNGER
From 8 December in a renewed version of the overwhelming work
signed by Paola Barbato and Corrado Roi
“When Corrado and I started talking about UT it was two houses, three daughters and countless cats ago. We knew each other but had never collaborated yet. We both worked long hours and we called each other almost every day to have a chat between night owls (…) And the day came when we decided to tackle so much wild material, to tame it, unravel it and then weave it, creating UT – The series. It was beautiful, but, not satisfied with having been Ulysses, we then transformed into Penelope, we unraveled and rewove the plot so as to give it a new shape, arriving in this “definitive” version. Is it always that story? Naturally. Yet, believe us: UT is never the same.”

What happened to humanity? Who is Ut and what is his mission? The words of Paola Barbato they immerse us in an enigmatic adventure, to be discovered and rediscovered, made up of symbols, ghosts and elusive allusions that open the doors of a restless dream…
