Il matrimonio dello zio

(My uncle's wedding) Book not yet available in English


Giulia has just returned from New York, where her uncle married his boyfriend Riccardo. She has a lot of things to tell her friends: the trip, the Statue of Liberty, Central Park and above all the marriage of her uncle!


With brilliant illustrations by Sara Not, the book is an entertaining account of a family’s trip to New York to attend the uncle’s wedding. Published before the law on civil unions was passed in Italy, this book tells in a playful way that there are places in the world where a man can marry his boyfriend. The publishing house Lo Stampatello was established with the specific aim to fill a gap in the Italian publishing market for children – the absence of representations of queer families.
