Celestino alla Salina dei Monaci is a story that contains other stories. But also a naturalist guide, a handbook that focuses on the universe of the young reader without neglecting the needs of a more experienced and demanding user.

Celestino is the character, the interpreter, the narrator of this story and takes us by hand in the magic and charm of the place. Celestino patrols, explores, monitors and holds the land that the natives of the Jonian-Salento area call "Salt evaporation pond of the Monks".

Wandering around in those magical places you can encounter rare plants and animals. While a flock of herons flyies over the waters, is expected to appear at any moment, between Holm and Juniper, the monks who centuries ago made the production area through the collection of white and precious grains. The salt has become a nature reserve. A place full of history and poetry. A place full of memory where you can wander among the sand dunes, the Mediterranean and the salt steppes, exploring the ruins of ancient buildings.
