Lola & Virginia is set to air daily on RAI 2 starting in September and the channel’s commercial arm RAI Trade has picked up merchandising rights for Italy. Italian publisher Panini, meanwhile, is set to launch a Lola & Virginia sticker stack book, story albums, puzzles and coloring books in Italy, Spain, Portugal and Brazil.
