Lovely and magical night at “MartinBook Festival” in Martinsicuro (Teramo, Italy). I had the honor and the joy to participate to it as author of “Francesco” (Francis), the first major historical illustrated biography of Pope Bergoglio, published by Editrice Velar. The event was held on last Saturday, July 30, sponsored by Martinbook cultural association and the City Council of Martinsicuro in the picturesque setting of the monumental complex of the Tower of Charles V and the annexed ancient customs, which now houses the Antiquarium Museum of Truentinum Castrum, which It preserves and displays archaeological finds from the territory of Martinsicuro.
It is always a great human and professional experience to participate in these events, which offer the opportunity to meet so many people and telling the process of work in writing and preparing “Francesco”, in its third revised edition, structured in 388 pages with 450 photos, published in large format (cm. 23 x 30) also available in a special edition in 3 volumes with slipcase. In the photo gallery: some pictures from the event. I was interviewed by journalist Noris Cretone. I thank for the collaboration: journalist Matteo Bianchini, professor Leopoldo Saraceni, Paolo Sandini (Velar Publishing) and the major Luca Camaioni. A special thanks to the people for the wonderful and great participation.
