The Italian Cultural Institute of Nairobi is promoting the first edition in Swahili of a book by Geronimo Stilton, the famous mouse-journalist born from an idea by Elisabetta Dami and already the protagonist of numerous publications for children translated into over 50 languages.

The book will be presented in Nairobi on 19 August as part of KidsCon, the new event dedicated to children and young people organised by the Nairobi Comic Convention.

A Thousand Wonders. A Journey to Discover Italy (Elfu Moja Nchini Italia.  Safari ya Kugundua Maajabu) is a special project promoted by the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, in collaboration with the Italian National Commission for UNESCO and realised by Edizioni Piemme-Mondadori Libri, with the aim of introducing girls and boys from all over the world to the artistic and cultural wonders of Italy.

Accompanied by his entire family, in Mille Meraviglie (A Thousand Wonders) Geronimo Stilton travels around Italy discovering cities, villages, stories and landscapes. From Rome to Venice, from the Apennines to the Alps, the friendly reporter visits the most famous monuments and places (including many sites on the UNESCO World Heritage lists), without forgetting the most hidden and lesser-known gems.

The Swahili language edition now joins the Italian, French, Spanish and English versions and the more recent Portuguese, Bulgarian, Chinese, Ukrainian, Arabic and Vietnamese translations.

This special edition has been produced by the Italian Cultural Institute in Nairobi in collaboration with Atlantyca Entertainment, responsible for the international editions of the Geronimo Stilton books, and the Kenyan publisher Twaweza Communications. The book will be made available to the public on the occasion of KidsCon and will then be distributed in schools and libraries, offering young Swahili-speaking readers the chance to follow the exciting adventures of Geronimo Stilton and explore Italy accompanied by an excellent guide.

The book presentation will be accompanied by a meeting with Geronimo in moustache and fur, organised as part of the KidsCon events programme in Nairobi.
