Bologna Children’s Book Fair (at its 53rd edition this year, from 4th to 7th April) is one of the artistic and cultural events we love the most.
Not only because it is the most important illustration fair in the world, but above all because it is a place where creativity, hopes, dreams and projects really take life.
Illustrators from all over the world come to the Bologna Children’s Book Fair with their suitcases full of drawings and their hearts full of hopes.
Editors from all over the world come to the Bologna Children’s Book Fair with their offers, their professionalism and their passion.
It is great to see how many people in this beautiful world love illustration and are excited to spend four days talking and confronting.
As an illustrator and author, I always come back home from the fair with so many inspirations that I can hardly wait to start drawing and creating something new.
Writing and drawing stories for children is something really beautiful and having the chance to meet people from 98 different countries who do the same is a precious occasion illustrators and authors should never miss.
Thank you, Bologna Children’s Book Fair for always being so welcoming and inspiring!
