About us

Topittori is publisher of children and young adult picture books based in Milan. It was created in 2004 by Paolo Canton and Giovanna Zoboli. We have always considered books as tools to learn, play, achieve intellectual, emotional and aesthetic education. In that sense, picture books become essential instruments to avoid a passive approach to knowledge, to thinking, to feelings as well as extraordinary media for children to interpret reality through the human symbols of art, communication and culture. The ability to read, understand and express ourselves with symbols indeed is the crucial key of our time. It should be constantly practiced in order to improve our lives but also and especially to grow up into a full, responsible, mature independence.
