On 29 June, the Italian Cultural Institute of Nairobi presents an event inspired by the book ‘Storie di Rodari’, a publication edited by the Institute that offers translations of some of the famous Italian writer’s short stories into English and Swahili.

In the presence of translator Doris Kamunye and the Director of the Malindi National Museum, some of the short stories included in the book will be presented to the public through readings, drawings, and theatrical and dance performances by two Malindi primary schools, My-Me Academy and The Learning Hub.

This event, organised in collaboration with the Malindi Museum Society, takes place at the Malindi National Museum.
