What is said and what has been said about the kids of today , the fact that there are more groups than once, that you do not play more for the road, which are always attached to the computer only virtually socializing etc , partly true but not entirely correct in our opinion, because so it seems that all a belittling young now , their interests and their values.

The unmissable events will be multiple in these three intense days , such as the intervention of Lemony Snicket , the author of ” A Series of Unfortunate Events ” which as everyone knows is a series of novels that has been a huge success thanks to the that were brought in cinematography , intervention is likely to happen through a video greetings to the readers of the Sea of books , as Daniel Handler and his alter ego Lemony Snicket will not be present in June this year, but surely June 2015 will be in Rimini , we could call it a funny coincidence precisely ” an unfortunate event ” and hence the doubt that it is a publicity stunt is already very present in many , but to us it does not matter.
