“Fairy tales are true”: the magic of Reggionarra’s stories comes back in Reggio Emilia

From the 26th to 28th of May the new edition dedicated to Italo Calvino on the 100th anniversary of his birth

    “Here the invisible becomes visible,

    fantastic creatures pictured by girls and boys

    of Preschools and childhood schools


    they show themselves

    and they prepare to celebrate with us

    the time of Stories.”

    “Fairy tales are true” is the theme of edition 2023 of Reggionarra, dedicated to Italo Calvino on the 100th anniversary of his birth.

    Italo Calvino sees in fairy tales the way of deep values, in his opinion “the ethical function that telling stories has in popular understanding, must be seek not in content’s direction but in the institution of the fairy tale itself, this means telling them and listening to them”. Also ”the meaning of this activity that is necessary and antique, remains still the same of the origin: making questions and giving answers”.


    From 26th to 28th of May, in squares and streets, come and discover the magic of stories in Reggio Emilia!
