‘A Good Liver Stew’ is an etching of a folktale from Picinisco, Italy. The story originates in the popular culture of Picinisco around the 1900’s, typically passed on by word of mouth. The storyteller in this project is Liliana De Felice. She is the migrant descendant of inhabitants in Picinisco. The stories were told to her by locals on their return to the village whilst visiting relatives.
This etching is one of a series of nine artworks based on Picinisco folktales.
