Junior Poetry Festival @ the Bologna Children’s Book Fair

Chiara and Grazia from Junior Poetry Festival worked to create the final event of the Bologna Children’s Book Fair 2021. It was a Poetry Party, a collective reading of poetry from all around the World, in many different languages, which we choose to leave untranslated so that the music of the original verses could be appreciated, even by those who don’t understand the languages spoken by the various readers.

All poetry lovers should watch it, and teachers can show parts of it in classrooms as an example of how poetry sounds in different languages.
