The adventure of a bear in the Italian woods.

This story’s protagonist is a bear who tells us about her own life, and that of all the bears that have repopulated the Italian woods in recent years. We meet Ursula in winter when, newly born, she stays safe in the den with her mum and brother. As the seasons pass, we see her grow, play, go in search of food, face dangers and adversities, until the moment when she’s finally ready to take her own path.

  • An engaging narrative.

  • Accurate scientific insights by researchers from MUSE (Trento Science Museum) to raise awareness of the brown bear’s characteristics and habits.
