Invitation for sponsoring the book “4 stories of Bogliasco”
I am a retired diplomat and active historian (70) with 15 books and about 200 other publications. I would be very grateful if you could sponsor 1) the publishing and 2) the presentation in some countries of our Four Stories of Bogliasco. All of them are in four languages: English, Hungarian, Italian and Russian.
In the 1st story Vladimir Strochkov, the excellent Russian poet makes a new step towards Nobel price. In the second you can know the very interesting life of J. A. Dobrovolskaja, my teacher of Italian language (love of Hemingway?). In the 3rd story the Pulitzer Prize winner American poet Mark Strand recognises that “everybody is Hungarian”. The fourth story tells my almost fatal struggle with the sea.
After having them published, we‘d like to present it in the 5 concerned countries with the participation of the heroes. (In Budapest, Balatonfüred and Pécs, in Bogliasco, Genova and Rome, in New York and Washington, in Moscow and Sankt Peterburg and in London.)
I and my „heroes” – partecipants and creators of this nice albom – we all hope that our book will become an example of altruistic friendship and of fruitful international cooperation among people of various countries, serving to the noble cause of peace and undersatnding.
Based on my publisher’s preliminary calculations, the book would cost around HUF 2 million (ca. EUR 8.000), the presentation in each countries about 5.000 EUR.
