Great participation in the first day of the 15th edition of the Piccolo Animation Festival, the review dedicated to illustration and author animation organized by the Viva Comix Association. Great show by the Rulli Frulli, an Emilian band that grew up in difficult circumstances such as those of the earthquake that struck Emilia Romagna in 2012 and made up of about seventy boys between eight and thirty years old, who played in the streets of city up to the Auditorium, where, after the animated screenings, Altan was awarded the medal of the city of San Vito, a career award. San Vito al Tagliamento is in fact the historical seat of the Altan family, home of Antonio Altan, Bishop of Urbino, Canon of Aquileia at the time of the Patriarchate, as well as ancestor of the great illustrator and of his father Carlo, a well-known anthropologist.
The mayor Andrea Bernava, the councilor for vitality Andrea Bruscia and the councilor Giulia Napoli personally deliver the homage. Presenting the evening and the festival were the artistic director Paola Bristot and Roberto Paganelli, also author of the animations projected during the concert with Michele Bernardi and Beatrice Pucci. The concert was exciting, garnered the applause of the audience in the hall, as did the vision of the episodes of Pimpa who confirmed herself as one of the most popular characters in Italian animation cinema. Thanks from the Piccolo Animation Festival went to all the participants, operators and institutions who contributed to a special evening, but above all to the Banda Rulli Frulli and to the great maestro Altan!

Microphone in hand the creators of this concept went among the young people of Trieste, asking them the most varied questions regarding the sphere of sexuality and affectivity, tracing those that were the themes of “Comizi d’Amore”, declining them to the context contemporary social. This is the return of a first fragment of interviews carried out around Trieste regarding sexual education: how do today’s young people approach sexuality?
