Roberto Piumini, one of Italy’s most famous authors of children’s literature, invites youngsters to read the stories illustrated in the monumental cycle of tapestries devoted to Queen Artemisia: riddles, nursery rhymes and dialogues in rhyme among the leading characters introduce young readers to a world of armour, knights and fantastical architecture. The joy of playing thus stimulates observation and an interest in art, as it leads to the discovery of a taste for words and their magic.
