Emanuele Trevi (born 1964 in Rome), writer, essayist and literary critic, is one of the most important yet unclassifiable authors on the Italian literary scene. Shortlisted for the Premio Strega 2012, Qualcosa di scritto – along with Il libro della gioia perpetua – is one of the volumes destined to stand out in 21st-century Italian literature. He is also the author of literary reportages on India (L'onda del porto) and reflections on the theme of the journey (Il viaggio iniziatico). He writes for the Corriere della Sera newspaper.
Writer Emanuele Trevi and photographer Giovanna Silva recount, each in their own manner, their journey with artist Luigi Ontani in Bali at the time of the preparation of the Ogoh Ogoh carnival procession. With original illustrations by Ontani.
