The variety of natural landscapes that characterize the far north of America and the intertwining of human events that the imagination of screenwriters and designers have set there are the thread along which Alessandra Lazzari and Oscar Nalesini carry out a short, but sufficiently complete, re-enactment of the work of many Italian cartoonists who for decades have provided, with their original contribution, new life to the world made immortal by writers like Cooper and London and made Canada closer to the hearts of many Italians.

Alessandra Lazzari, archaeologist from the Ancient Near East with field experience in Turkey, Syria, Jordan, Oman, Iran, Turkmenistan. She deals with the computerization of archaeological data and the creation of databases; management of the archives of the Shahr-i Sokhta excavation; integration projects of advanced survey techniques, GIS and numerical models for the knowledge of archaeological sites. For several years, she has been developing a personal project on the perception of the exotic in Italian comics.
