A special journey dubbed in nine languages (Italian, English, Spanish, French, Portuguese, Vietnamese, Korean, Mandarin and Japanese), was created to highlight unique places in Italy that are not well known abroad, where beauty, history, and culture meet to create rare gems, like those that the fairies will find during their journey.
The animated series is part of the initiatives promoted by the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation and was designed to tell the story of our country and its territories that are not well known to the general international public. The series presents the great historical, cultural, and naturalistic importance of these locations to young people.
During the ITTV panel at the NeueHouse in Los Angeles, the trailer and eight episodes of the series in English will be launched as a world premiere. An adventure full of magic, mystery, and wonderful places that from October 30th will be available on the @winxclub YouTube channels.
