Take a comfortable seat, put on your headphones, and let Sebastiano Bazzichetto transport you to a whimsical journey through the favoloso world of Gianni Rodari!
A hundred years have passed since the birth of Gianni Rodari (1920-1980), and ScuolaScuola is honored to join in the celebrations that are taking place all around the world to spread his revolutionary poetics. Like many Italians who grew up reading his books, we love how his stories are often comic, with elements of fantasy and absurdity yet still retain a link to the real world. It’s unclear whether they’re intended for adults, teenagers or precocious children, an ambiguity that attests to the universality of his work. He is revered in Italy the way English-speakers cherish Roald Dahl, Maurice Sendak and William Steig.
We recommend this program to students of all ages who have completed Corso Como or equivalent level (A2-B1).
