Antonella Capetti was born in Grosio, a small town in Northern Italy, in 1967. She started reading before she was 5 and hasn’t stopped ever since. When she was 20, she started teaching at kindergarten, where she worked for 17 years. Then she moved to primary school, where she’s being teaching Italian since 2004. Her strong passion for picture books has always been a constant theme in her work: since 2013 she takes care of Apedario blog, where she writes on her activities with pupils inspired on picture books reading. She published nursery rhymes and short stories. But the book she’s most fond of, until today, is a self publication that gathers together 108 poems written and selected by 54 of her students.
