During the nineteen century, in a place near the city of Curitiba in Paraná, there was a colony of Italian immigrants from Sicily. It was not by chance that this place was called Colonia Cecília. There lived Piera, the protagonist of this story, with his family and friends. The Colony was anarchistic: no one was in charge of anyone, and everyone shared everything. The children played, sang and danced. The school was named, Free School, and for four years Piera and the colony enjoyed the common welfare. The events described in the story, outline the aspirations of women and men sniffing freedom
The book also includes an annex with a collection about the Cecilia Colony and historical and political information about the Cecilia Colony.
Sniffing freedom combines images and narratives in a playful and informative way, as well as a curious, investigative prone reader to enjoy the pleasure of reading.
