The Little Prince at Pitti Bimbo : an insight


We told you the Little Prince was in Firenze for the Pitti Bimbo fair.

Here is the report from our italian partner, who was there !

The partnership of the Little Prince, Bompiani and « Style Piccoli » (a magazine for parents of children 0-12 years), organized to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the Little Prince,  was a great success. 


People were excited to find the Little Prince at Pitti Bimbo in Florence and willingly participated in a game based on the collection of stickers and completing a postcard to get free copies of the magazine « Style Piccoli ». Many visitors told us how much they love the Little Prince! 

The magazine STYLE displayed several articles about our hero.

He has decided to translate it. « I know the book has been translated in more than 250 languages in the world, including several Indian languages, as Odi, Bangla, Hindi, etc. So why not sanskrit ? »
