Sept 7 – Nov 10, 2019 "Italian Excellence": Giovanni 'Gianni' Rodari

  Considered by many to be Italy’s most important twentieth-century  writer for children, Rodari was awarded the prestigious Hans Christian  Andersen Medal in 1970 to recognize his achievements. In honor of the  centenary of Rodari’s birth, the Bologna Children’s Book Fair, Regione  Emilia Romagna, and the Italian Cultural Institute of San Francisco have  partnered to present an exhibition of original illustrations for  Rodari’s books. The exhibition represents a timeline of Italian design,  introducing historical figures like Bruno Munari and Emanuele Luzzati,  as well as contemporary artists, many of whom are internationally  recognized.
