Social greetings begin at 7.15pm followed by a presentation at 8pm by Marcella Terrusi, PhD, who will discuss how books serve as bridges between cultures and in particular, picture and wordless books. 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 author of Albi Illustrati (Carocci, 2012) and Meraviglie Mute (2017). Following the presentation, consider joining us for a no-host aperitivo. Location to be announced soon.
