there was a beautiful baby named Alice who chose to live near the sea with her parents Adriana and Matteo.
She saw a white rabbit in Costarica and realized it was her wonderland.

"If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is, because everything would be what it isn't. And contrary wise, what is, it wouldn't be. And what it wouldn't be, it would. You see?"
