PEEMPIP’s participation in the international translation project titled “Is There Something in the Air? / Che cos'è che in aria vola?”, which was launched by the Bologna Children’s Book Fair 2020 (BCBF) in cooperation with translators and translator associations from all over the world, led to a creative collaboration with audiovisual artists from the fields of music and animation. Upon PEEMPIP’s invitation, young rapper TQR did his magic and created his very own rap song, based on the Greek translation of Roberto Piumini’s poem. Then, the talented graduate students of the Department of Audio & Visual Arts of the Ionian University, Dilena Iliopoulou and Konstantina Gavriilidou picked up the torch, to create an animated video for the song.
