The Mafalda exhibition in San Jose
A few weeks ago there was a special exhibition dedicated to Mafalda, a famous comic in Latin-America. On September 29th 1964, the first drawing of Mafalda was made by Joaquín Salvador Lavado, Quino. Mafalda is a little girl who asks all the grownups in her life the most difficult questions about life.
Mafalda turned out to be very popular, and the comic has been translated into 26 languages! Up until today, even though there haven’t been new books published in a long time, the story of Mafalda will always be the same, and it will always speak to people from all around the world.
Because Mafalda is so famous, we decided to take some of our students to the exhibition to learn more about this little girl and they enjoyed it very much.
