5.5.2018 Presentazione & Reading @ Incontro Italia Lucerna

Together with Carlo Simonelli I enjoyed a very grateful event @ Incontro Italia Lucerne, hosted by Rossana Muzzi, director of the school. There were some representatives from other literature associations, who showed interest in booking us for next year events. Most of all I was took by surprise as my cousin, daughter of my auntie Anna of the „Paper Factory“, bumped in and showed up as a real witness of the story!

La Sorgente Nr. 95 / Ambasciatrice culturale internazionale

The half-yearly issue of the local magazine of Caposele (I) „La Sorgente“, honors me for the merits I’ve done over past few years, especially on Italian territory. The magazine is sent to all Italians living abroad, spread over the planet and it’s appreciate for keeping a relationship to their mother country. I feel very honored, grazie mille to the director Nicola Conforti & Salvatore Conforti and let’s get on to issue Nr. 100!
