The Italian Cultural Institute in Tunis presents the exhibition “Excellence. The new generation of Italian illustrators for children”, organised in collaboration with the Bologna Children’s Book Fair/Bologna Fiere and Sgrunf Kids Box.
On display, from 19 November to 4 December 2021, in the main hall of the Institute of Culture in Tunis, are the works of twenty young Italian illustrators (aged between 25 and 35), chosen from among the most promising: Giacomo Agnello Modica, Andrea Antinori, Michael Bardeggia, Beatrice Cerocchi, Marianna Coppo, Francesca Corso, Cecilia Ferri, Chiara Ficarelli, Marta Pantaleo, Giulia Pastorino, Irene Penazzi, Alice Piaggio, Camilla Pintonato, Michelangelo Rossato, Veronica Ruffato, Lorenzo Sangió, Francesca Sanna, Luca Tagliafico, Giulia Tomai, Veronica Truttero.
Each artist is represented by illustrations made using different techniques that highlight visual poetics capable of interpreting classic works, from fairy tales to Dante. The Arabic translation of the texts, by the Tunisian Cultural Institute, will allow the Tunisian public to better appreciate the initiative, which returns after the success of the two past editions: “Illustration for children: Italian excellence” and “Figures for Gianni Rodari. Italian Excellence”.
