Our experience at the Bologna Children’s Book Fair

By | sami apps | No Comments

We have already returned from the Bologna Children’s Book Fair. We are exhausted we have walked from one side to another, from top to bottom to see all the corners of the fair. The truth has been impressive, there are many publishers who are dedicated to the beautiful art of creating books for boys and girls. But Bologna is also an unforgettable event for illustrators, we have been impressed by the number of highly talented illustrators who pass through the fair.


In addition, as we have already told you the guests of honor this year have been Catalunya and the Balearic Islands. So the Catalan and Balearic publishers have had a lot of exposure with exhibitions, etc. We loved the hammocks format of the exhibition of illustrators, a good space to be inspired and rest at the same time.

In addition, Sami Apps was able to participate in one of the many gatherings organized by the Institut Ramon Llull. Specifically, we were in the talk Transmedia Literature where we talk about literature in different formats and new technological devices. We had as compatriots Manuel Barrios and Anna Mansó of Una mà de contes and Cristina Puig of Boolino.

Also we were able to walk through the Digital Area and we knew firsthand the world news in children’s apps. And we also taste the winners with the Bologna Ragazzi Digital Award 2017 “Oh!” (Anouck Boisrobert & Louis Rigaud, France) and Toontastic 3D (Google, USA).

We look forward to returning next year!

Arrivederci Bologna!!
