The aim of the call for applications for primary and middle schools is to relaunch the pleasure of reading aloud among young people and young people, highlighting aspects of social interaction and sharing, through play and comparison with peers.

All participants will be asked to perform on Saturday 18 May 2019 at the Movicentro. The first three "readers" classified for each of the three categories will be awarded: Biennium Primary Schools (6 / 7 years); Three-year primary schools (8 / 10 years); Secondary Schools of 1 ^ degree (11 / 13 years).
