Résumé

The article describes Nati per leggere, a project launched in Italy in 1999 with the aim of sensitising families about the benefits of reading among 0-6 years old children. The theoretical framework is presented through the works of Rita Valentino Merletti and Luigi Paladin and followed by the description of the project functioning and activities. A brief reading-note of the work Building Communities of Engaged Readers: Reading for Pleasure by Teresa Cremin, Marilyn Mottram, Fiona M. Collins, Sacha Powell, and Kimberly Safford (London: Routledge, 2014) provides some point of consideration for a possible enrichment of the project.
