For children in pre-school and 1st cycle, the PSP will present the new episode of the animated series “How I Do It says FALCO”, this time with the title “Igor and the Competition of Friendship”, which a particularly appealing and playful way proposes the same objectives, an innovative design and high preventive impact, which in year and a half has reached a universe of more than 150,000 children.
