From 2014 to 2016, Valentina Neri worked on Toilet Club Milano, a club where a group of Drag Queens created a party out of nowhere and entered into the map as one of the most important in the Milan's gay clubbing scenes.
After portraying characters’ growth and the colourful atmosphere, she continues her project working on the output. The main inspiration for the book Almanacco is “La Scena Illustrata 1941”, an influential Italian monthly publication born in 1884, which focused on current events with an ironic and direct style. Her research drove her illustrating the queer world while experimenting with different languages.
Photographs, descriptions, titles, illustrations, presentations, quotes and its fascist layout, taken get from the original magazine, talks about a group of people in a free way while giving readers the possible different interpretations.
