These are the statements of the author fabio Celoni:

“Totò had a great dream: to make a film about Don Quixote, which he never managed to make. I owe a great debt of gratitude to him, for all the joy he gave me, and this is the only way I have to thank him: to finally make him realize that dream, not on film, but between the pages of a comic. For the Maiella and for the Tip! ”.
