Iconic depiction of a young son of the wolf who joyfully advances on his bike confident in the glorious patrimony. It is one of at least three editions of the lithographed tin, the result of another Italian and a French. The press is curated by De Andreis Casanova’s tylito plant in Sampierdarena. The specimen has some defects, the main one is an aura of chromatic alteration in the upper right side due to the overlap of nitro paint and deliberately left by the restoration work carried out so far.
