It’s time for a day in Italy. We’ll play a game of soccer, enjoy paninis and gelato, and have fun until it’s time for buonanotte. Italian author Francesca Di Marzo and illustrator Naida Mazzenga draw on their lived experiences in Italy to create an authentic picture of modern Italian life as part of the Our World Series for very young readers.
Francesca Di Marzo was born and raised in Rome, Italy. She is an art historian whose thesis focused on the Renaissance painter Raphael. She worked in several contemporary art museums in Europe as art educator, with a particular propensity for school-age children and teenagers. Since 2011 she has been a tour guide in her hometown and specializes in family tours. In 2016, became the co-founder of a children’s bookshop in a suburb of Rome.
