“Zlatan. Un viaggio dove comincia il mito” is a graphic novel by Paolo Castaldi, published by Feltrinelli Editore.
Zlatan Ibrahimović is best known by football fans around the world for his talent and rebellious character. He grew up in Rosengård, a difficult neighborhood in Malmö where immigrants from all over Europe meet. In this graphic novel, Paolo Castaldi chose to tell Zlatan’s youth, his first years of training, family conflicts and the first matches in the big football teams.Paolo Castaldi even spent a period in Rosengård to write and draw “Zlatan”. He visited the places frequented by the football player and he listened to the people who still live in the neighborhood. His graphic novel could in fact be considered halfway between biography and graphic journalism: it is both a reality comic and a reportage in search of the origins of Zlatan Ibrahimović.
