Italian Literature for Children Translated into Albanian 1990 – 2014

Manjola Sulaj, Edlira Mantho


After the 90s, with the collapse of the communist dictatorship in Albania, there has been published annually more than one book of Italian literature for children in Albanian. The democratization of our country set the foundation of a golden season, in terms of number of translations from Italian literature for children. During this period, there appeared new Italian language translators’ names, and have been present many of those who have also been active during the dictatorship. In this article we intend to make a short presentation of the reprinted books, as well as of the new books, which are numerous, belonging to the famous Italian classics and to the contemporary authors. The majority of the translations of the contemporary Italian authors for children, show the contact of the publishers and translators with the updates in the field of children's literature in Italy, which is not recorded in the previous periods.
