The show recounts the fun adventures of Nefertine – a speciallittle girl endowed with lively intelligence, inexhaustible curiosity and great courage. She aspires to be the first female scribe in the history of Egypt, so she can describe the wonderful word that surrounds her. Indeed, the ancient Egypt of the pharaohs has many customs, traditions, colours and flavours that are lovely and intriguing at the same time. And, in fact, Nefertine is already a budding young journalist who uses her papyrus-diary to note down the adventures she has with her friend Piramses.
