Tiziana Dollorenzo Solari, author of a scientific artistic research "The dreams of the children of the world"  promotes a follow up of her initiative inviting to send her drawings of children who live this period of forced isolation. A way to express difficult emotions not only for children but also for adults. This is the Facebook page of the initiative with more information, also about submitting  the drawings.


  • "Home Sweet Home" - “Casa dolce casa"

Paola Merolli, who authored children's books including "Why don't I fly?" and "The mystery of Desilucente" launched a drawing contest entitled "Home Sweet Home" - Casa Dolce Casa", inviting children to draw "their dream house in the place of their dreams" and accompanying the work with a short paragraph, or a thought, or a poem on this  moment we are all living.
A contest aimed at making us feel closer that will lead to the release of an e-book: “Home sweet Home” will be a book full of memories and emotions.
The profits of the e-book will be donated to the National Institute for Infectious Diseases Lazzaro Spallanzani in Rome.
