Launch of the booklet 'Storie di Rodari' - in Italian, English and Swahili



Launch of the booklet 'Storie di Rodari'  -  in Italian, English and Swahili

Launch of the booklet "Storie di Rodari" which collects a series of selected stories by the author whose centenary of his birth last year was postponed due to the Covid pandemic. The stories are presented in three languages: Italian, English and Swahili. Published both in hard copy and digital format accessible on the social networks of this Italian Cultural Institute of Nairobi, to facilitate its dissemination.

The publication introduces, for the first time in Kenya,  the great Italian author defined as a "genius" of children's literature who, with his stories, narrates an ever-current and universal reality, even in addressing an audience that is not actually limited to that of children.

The launch of the booklet, in its virtual version, includes a video clip recorded in part in the park of the Residence, valuable for its richness in particular of flora, and in this way to underline the message of the famous nursery rhyme "what does it take", sung in English and Swahili in the same video clip, which can also present a renewed reflection on the importance of preserving the environment on a global level.

The digital version of the booklet is now accessible at this link: (link temporarily unavailable)

The video clip can be viewed here:
