It is the ‘World Play Day 2021’, the World Day of the game. Celebrated on May 28, the initiative aims to celebrate the right of every child to play around the world. The event is promoted by the International Toy Library Association (ITLA), the international association of toy libraries. In this year, still characterized by the pandemic, as stated on the website ‘Itla-ToyLibraries.org’, the theme of the day is ‘Playing is healthy’. That is, ‘Playing is healthy’. “The reason why this day is promoted is to emphasize the importance of play in all our lives and particularly in those of our children – are the words of the creator of the day, Freda Kim, reported on the association’s website – . The little ones, in fact, can learn to express themselves through play, make friends, do physical exercise; they also acquire basic skills such as concentration, imagination and the ability to express themselves “. Among the various initiatives in the Italian squares, in Piazza Papa Giovanni Paolo II, located in the heart of the Scampia district, at 5 pm there will be the Neapolitan stage of the national flash mob on the occasion of ‘World Game Day’: the initiative was launched simultaneously in 9 Italian cities by the ‘Ip Ip Urrà’ project, selected by ‘Con i Bambini’ as part of the Fund for the fight against juvenile educational poverty. For the occasion, squares, parks, districts, courtyards and balconies will become the space in which children and adults will send a message for the right to urban space and play of a childhood hard hit by the lockdown and the pandemic. Bergamo, Florence, Genoa, Lecce, Messina, Moncalieri, Pioltello and Rome will also be involved in the flash mob with Naples.
