The world-wide famous children’s publishing author, Nicoletta Costa, will attend the upcoming Brand Licensing Europe, for the first time as exhibitor

If you wish to discover some of the cutest children’s characters published along the past 30 years and see the pure art of children’s books, you can’t miss to meet Nicoletta Costa world, for the first time present with her own booth (#C105) at BLE.

Nicoletta Costa has been defined as one of the greatest interpreters of the “childhood planet” at international level since she has been able to preserve the little girl who is inside her heart and to look at the world through the eyes of a child. Since 1980 she has continued to tell this world through words and drawings in all her stories: with more than 300 books she makes us discover how children think, act and behave. With this aim she gives birth to all her characters: Giovanna the Moon, Mister Aquilone, Margherita the sleepy Teacher, Teodora the Witch, Olga the Cloud, who like a little child has always to…rain, Julio Bunny and a rich world of Cats, Letters and Numbers. All these heroes are the protagonists of many micro narrative situations that stimulate in children the confidence in themselves and in life. Nicoletta Costa narrative and iconic universe lives in the dimension of animism, anthropomorphism and magical realism under the sign of the cat, that is the ubiquitous “tutelary deity” of the author’s poetry and symbol of childhood imagery, as well as a precise pedagogical and didactic path that develops in amusing illustrated alphabets.

Nicoletta Costa world has already gone off the world of books. Her character Julio Bunny, published for the first time in 1990 by Franco Cosimo Panini, has already become a TV Series, thanks to the co-production of Magnolia, Rai Fiction and the Chinese Agogo Entertainment. Another popular character from her world, Olga the Cloud, will fly soon on air on TV thanks to the independent producer Enanimation.

Moreover the art of Nicoletta Costa has been already applied to, infant products, textile and toys.
