Nina and me in good company, CEO and assistant Malia Edizioni - #giuntieditore

I remember in 2011 I was here by "the illustration wall" like these illustrators, pin upping Nina's tiny posters on the wall...hoping that someone would notice her....

"The Illustration Wall" ...these girls like me in 2011

2009 | I went to the Bologna Children's Book Fair first time in 2009. I didn't even know about its existance...Those days I was just into Nina's start-up project..I didn't know nothing about illustrations, fairs, how to, where to etc.
2011 | I went to Bologna Children's Book Fair knowing what was about, I just went to have a look at the magic world of illustrations. It was so full of talented illustrators and authors.
2012 | same as 2011 :)
2014 | I went to Bologna Children's Book Fair not only as visitor. My License Agency DIC2SRL had a booth by the pavillon Bologna Licensing Trade fair which take place in the same days. The Licensing industry has expanded in a big way in recent decades, both domestically and abroad, and provides extraordinary growth opportunities for licensors and licensees. That's to say an opportunity to promote my brand Nina and other little things.
2018 Well I finally went to Bologna because Nina and other little things is going to be published by MaliaEdizioni which belongs to GIUNTI EDITORE founded in 1841 in Florence.

Nina and other little things - MaliaEdizioni- MY FIRST 4 BOOKS!!

The Bologna Children’s Book Fair is the event in the publishing year’s calendar, built around children’s content today. 

With over 50 years of experience the fair has succeeded in bringing together a unique and diverse global audience. The result is the world’s premium copyright exchange hub when it comes to publishing and now it includes an extra core that extends to all multi-media and licensing business for children’s content.
