We are glad to announce the winner of the second edition of the Carla Poesio award for the best Italian dissertation on children's literature.
Among the 23 theses received from universities across Italy, the jury identified five finalists:
The winner is Sara Mugerli with The television in Italy represented in children's magazines from 1954 to 1964, a rigorous and accurate paper that analyses the relationship between the periodical press for children (Il Corriere dei piccoli, Il Giornalino, Il Vittorioso) and television in the decade of its birth and evolution. Sara's thesis will be published by the ETS publishing house, thanks to the support of BolognaFiere.
We are also very pleased to announce that the winning thesis of the first edition, The dystopian novel at Primary School: utopia or reality? by Ilaria Martino, has now been published by ETS Edizioni.
