Incredible, but true! Despite the heat, despite the holidays, despite August, my book “Pronto? Sono il librofonino” (“Hello? I’m the bookmobilephone”), that I wrote for “I Quindici” Publishing, with the illustrations by Eleonora Moretti, today gains the top of Amazon’s Best Sellers ranking. It is placed at n.1, of the category Books for Children on Complex Themes. But not only: it also comes in 7th place for the category of books on the subject of Bullying. It is a particularly significant news, also because the book – which tells “stories of smombies, smartphones and cyberbullies” – was released in January 2017 and since then has always remained in the Top 100 of Amazon, also supported by the long series of meetings that I had in schools throughout Italy, meeting up to now about 40.000 students. A huge “thank you” to the ever more numerous readers who have decreed the success of this “little” book that is thrilling kids and families all over Italy!

It’s out! And it’s so beautiful! LamiAgenda 2018/2019 is ready! This year’s theme is: “All up for Earth!”. My artwork, “Strati di memoria” (Memory Layers), made with small pieces of waste paper, is the cover and characterizes the entire iconographic part. LamiAgenda, published in Italy by I Quindici, has a square shape, the texts are written in Easy Reading format (ideal for those who are subject to forms of dyslexia) and contains personalized pages made by the same schools. Yes, it’s a small masterpiece of design, starting from the cover, which is in line with the annual theme of the diary, devoted to environmental issues and the commitment that every person must give to improve our quality of life.

The original cover of “LamiAgenda” is a collage of waste-paper created by Roberto Alborghetti for his “Lacer/actions” project.

ABOUT “TIME FOR BOOKS” IN MILAN
“Tempo di Libri’ (Time for Books) is the name of the new book fair that will take place in Milan from April 19-23, 2017. The fair has been organised at the Milan Rho trade fair centre after the long-established Turin book fair lost the confidence of Italian publishers earlier this year. The programme is to be overseen by Chiara Valerio, Pierdomenico Baccalario and Giovanni Peresson with oversight from a scientific committee responsible for drawing up the guidelines for the general content of the event. The logo is of a book illuminated by the sun that doubles as a sun dial.
The new fair aims to promote a new “interactive” way of approaching books and reading, organisers said. “There will be the much-loved authors but we would like the public to take part,” said Renata Gorgani, president of the new Fabbrica del Libro in Milan. “We would like the fair to be a huge meeting place where non-readers also come,” she added. “I think it will be useful for Turin too that the fair is being held here,”
