Terrusi is currently a Research Fellow for the Department for Life Quality Studies at the University of Bologna, Rimini campus and her areas of research include children's literature, outdoor education, fashion and inclusion. She collaborates with the Bologna Children's Books Fair and the Giannino Stoppani group and is active on the national board of IBBY (International Board on Books for Young People).

From the Board of Directors: Contact Us

  • Be a part of The IWF 20th Anniversary Cookbook. It's simple; send us one of your favorite recipes, tell us why and email it to web@iwfbologna.com by November 5th. Don't stress about the formatting as we will take care of it! The book aims to offer all members the opportunity to share not just a dish, but a bit about themselves. Feel free to add a personal commentary since dinner never makes itself. The recipe book will serve as a fundraiser for the new website and should be on sale in time for the holidays! Have a preview of a sample page on the website.
