“Imaginary friends”: are small sculptures made with wire. The concept is an “alter ego” that people can take with them wherever they want like a lucky charm, it is a symbol of an imaginary world, a trusted friend who is ready to listen to any thought at any moment, keep company and play tirelessly whenever needed. This kind of activity has been created for the first time for autistic children in 2015. Since then the imaginary friends travel around the world especially in places with people in need.
