The flourishing of Piazza del Popolo beneath the Pincian Hill…
Once upon a time lived in the kingdom of Duloc a greenish, foul-mouthed and a bit ‘gruff ogre named Shrek.
His perfect life was quiet and happy until he was disturbed by a horde of enchanted creatures guilty of messing up his peaceful swamp. The creatures were the victims of an edict of Lord Farquaad, the local prince, who wanted all the enchanted creatures out of his kingdom. Among them, there was a friendly and talkative Donkey, who soon became Shrek’s faithful companion of adventures.
In an effort to solve this annoying situation, Shreck and Donkey head together to the castle of Lord Farquaad whose only concern however, is to be crowned king and this can only happen if he marry a princess.
This is how our two heroes end up trying to save Princess Fiona, locked in the tower of a castle guarded by a dragoness as the deal with the stupid and wicked prince is: if Shrek will liberate Fiona, he can have back his quiet life in the swamp…
Will the extravagant character win the heart of his Princess? Will he be able to simply go back to his quiet but lonely swamp after having made so many friends and living such and adventure? Join Shrek and his loyal friend Donkey in their adventure to rescue Princess to find ithe answers!
