Bologna Children’s Book Fair 2023, a leading and reference event for the children’s books, illustrations and multimedia content industry sector, will be held from the 6th to the 9th of March at Bologna Fiere.

The upcoming in-person 60th anniversary will see approximately 1100 exhibiting companies from 90 countries presenting their newest products to over 21 000 expected trade visitors along with a variety of special activities and initiatives.

In 2023 Italy celebrates 100 years since the birth of Italo Calvino, and BCBF will commemorate the occasion by organising a new exhibition – Italian Excellence.  Also, the BolognaRagazzi Award will feature a new digital area and a 2023 special category – Photography. A new prize for Digital Libraries will be awarded at BolognaRagazzi CrossMedia.

An excellent occasion to visit one of the most cultural Italian cities and meet authors, publishers and illustrators from all over the world.
