Summary:
The story of Clara, an Indian rhinoceros, is a true story. His master (a Dutch captain) showed her in the main cities of Europe as a freak show. We are in the eighteenth century, and certainly no one had ever seen an animal like that. Clara was talked about writers and poets of the time and many painters portrayed her. To the true story of Clara, the writer Igiaba Scego has added other stories, more fantastic, with a more optimistic outlook, and more adventure, set in Venice during the carnival of 1751. We will also know a Jewish girl from the Venetian ghetto and a slave of African descent, that will help Clara find her freedom.
