OVERVIEW

Storytelling is extremely important for the processes of growth and knowledge of reality. The fairy tales, the lullabies, the counts, the songs and the readings that lead to the "good night", the cartoons and the apps that entertain the little humans in some moments - sometimes too many - of the day, tell stories. And those stories are much more than simple distractions: they are a powerful catalyst of emotions and affections, they help overcome insecurities and appease fears, but above all they transmit educational models with which children will continue to relate and confront for the rest of their lives.
