    Little Princess

    Little Princess is a children’s reading based on the book by Ulf Stark. Translated and adapted by Pino Costalunga ‘Principessa Piccolina’ – published by Raffaello / Le Pepite editions.

    The Plot

    Why does the Little Princess with the sweet and melodious voice sing such beautiful and sad songs? Because she is not like all other children, so at least say the King and Queen. Who knows if the nice prince thinks this too, who, passing a day there, hears his sweet song … A story that tackles the themes of diversity and affectivity in a poetic and amusing way. Ulf Stark, the great Swedish writer, in his first visit to Vicenza, was fascinated by the beautiful legend of Princess Jana of Villa ai Nani, an elegant eighteenth-century mansion located on the green hills surrounding the city, he wanted to reinterpret and rewrite it. Pino Costalunga, who at the time told him about it, took care of the translation and the adaptation from swedish, making the narration ideal for children, with the help of small objects and figures.

The meeting will be set in an ironic and fun way, it will warn of the dangers of reading: “Reading can make you think and think it’s too tiring, is better not to think!” Reading can help you make choices and understand that reality is not as simple as bad TV or tamed journalism often portrays it.

    It will be assumed that many children do not like to read, without blaming children, because often the problem is that reading has really become difficult for many, as many studies show. Furthermore, many have not yet had the opportunity to encounter the right pages that triggered the spring of appreciation.

    Stories of Ogres, Wolves and Witches

    Wolves, ogres and witches, protagonists of many scary stories, but also of many funny stories, because what happens if a witch wants to become friends with a child? And what if an ogre has to go on a diet and become a vegetarian? And again: if a wolf finds himself in front of a terrible Little Red Riding Hood, what happens? It happens that those who listen to the stories instead of being afraid will have a lot of crazy laughs. In fact, Pino Costalunga will read, making them relive in front of the eyes of the spectators, classic and non-classic fairy tales, where the bad ones become ridiculous, a little more human and a little less evil and where humans sometimes become … really mean.
