The Italian Authority for Children and Adolescents and Geronimo Stilton join together for minors’ rights

 

What’s the best way of explaining to the citizens of tomorrow – the children and adolescents of today – that they already have rights? How can we explain in a way suitable for them an issue that involves national and international law? Vincenzo Spadafora, the head of the Italian Authority for Children and Adolescents had the idea of asking for the assistance of Geronimo Stilton. The result is a special book Che avventura stratopica, Stilton! Alla scoperta dei diritti dei ragazzi, published by Piemme: a project of exceptional ethical and educational value that aims to explain the Authority’s activities.

The book was presented on 10 June at the Senate in Rome to mark the publication of the second annual report of the Authority for Children and Adolescents to the Speaker of the Senate Piero Grasso, the Deputy Speaker of the Chamber of Deputies Luigi Di Maio, the Minster of Justice Annamaria Cancellieri as well, of course, to the guests present.

A special section of the book is dedicated to the Convention on the Rights of the Child, approved by the United Nations General Assembly on 20 November 1989. It is a pull-out insert that can be removed and kept.

Che avventura stratopica, Stilton! Alla scoperta dei diritti dei ragazzi is a special edition, created for the Authority by Piemme.
