(ANSAmed) - NAPLES, APRIL 3 - The idea of promoting a dialogue and a strong alliance among civilisations was relaunched today here at the Galassia Gutenberg Book Fair by Michele Capasso, president and chairman of Fondazione Mediterraneo. "The Manifesto for the alliance among civilisations," he said, "represents an instrument to promote mobilization. "The project has already collected 20,000 supporters among intellectuals, politicians and representatives of the society coming from the two sides of the Mediterranean". The initiative also gained support from the Egyptian writer Gamal Al Gitani and Nasser El Ansari, president of Cairòs Book Fair,during Galassia Gutenberg´s third day. According to Al Gitani, it is necessary to promote more translations of literay works from one language into another and create a TV channel in two languages, following the model of the French-German TV, launched by then French President François Mitterand in Germany to foster a mutual knowledge between France and Germany.

(ANSAmed) - NAPLES, APRIL 3 - Italy-Egypt, there and back. A report originating from the 19th century, from which flows a painstaking knowledge about our country. A tradition which needs to be recovered and which today, more than ever, needs a strong reciprocity. These are the thoughts of renowned Egyptian writer Gamal al-Gitani, author of "Schegge di Fuoco" (Slivers of Fire), published in Italy by Jouvence and winner of the 2006 Grinzane Cavour Award for foreign literature. Taking part at Galassia Gutenberg in the meeting named "Culture of Dialogue, Culture of Blood", organised by the Mediterranean Foundation, Gitani impetuously hurls himself against the idea of "clash of civilisations". "The worst thing to do at this time is generalise," he says. "There are human objectives which need protection, and one can only do this with knowledge and respect for others, only with a mutual transfer of cultures. "This process has made huge steps backwards since the United States coined their slogan ´clash of civilisations´: civilisations do not confront, they react. From time to time it is me who influences, sometimes I am being influenced." Italian Ambassador to Egypt, Antonio Badini, also had his say on the "clash of civilisations". "Human vicissitudes concern everyone, human stories are all similar. The presumed ´clash of civilisations´ is a foolishness, originating fropm prejudices and lack of knowledge, and therefore of culture in a broader aspect," he comments. Culture, therefore, viewed as the only possible antidote. A culture that begins with books, "a privileged instrument of consciousness of others," the Ambassador said. (ANSAmed) RED-KWK

(ANSAmed) - NAPLES, APRIL 3 - The creation of a network between the Mediterranean book fairs, which would cross the basin from south to north and stretch from Cairo to Frankfurt, is the subject of an accord to be officially signed today by the Cairo International Book Fair, the region´s most renowned event, and the Fondazione Mediterraneo of Naples. The initiative was presented yesterday by the Cairo fair´s director, Nasser el-Ansari, and the president of the Fondazione Mediterraneo, Michele Capasso, during the second day of the Galassia Gutenberg, currently under way at Castel dell´Ovo. "Through projects of the kind, we would like to relaunch cultural cooperation with Italy, which has a millennium-long history. With this regard, we have given a go-ahead to negotiations with the Italian Ambassador in Cairo Antonio Badini, aimed at officially presenting Italy´s candidacy for being the guest of honour at the Cairo International Book Fair 2007," el-Ansari said. The Cairo fair is a cultural event, which last year enjoyed the participation of almost two million people, the presence of more than 700 publishers and 300 conferences and debates. "The Mediterranean book fairs´ network aims at promoting the reciprocal knowledge between the northern and southern coast of the Mediterranean," Capasso said. "There is another project, which is initiated in collaboration with the civil service and is aimed at the drawing up of a catalogue of all publications in Arab language, for distribution on the northern coast of the Mediterranean," Capasso added. "Because of ignorance, politicians and bureaucrats, Europe is still paying the price of lacking knowledge about the Arab world and its culture." (ANSAmed). RED-KTX

(ANSAmed) - NAPLES, APRIL 3 - ´Manifesto among civilisations´. This is the title of the document prepared by the Fondazione Mediterraneo of Naples with the aim to rebut to "those who are opposed to a real alliance among civlisations". The document was presented today by the President of the Fondazione, Michele Capasso, at the opening of the third day of the Galassia Gutenberg International Book Fair at the Castel dell´Ovo in Naples.

(ANSAmed) - NAPLES, APRIL 2 - Ornela Vorpsi, a young Albanian author who writes in Italian, has spoken about her choice of language at a meeting at Galassia Gutenberg, the international book fair hosted by Naples´ Castel dell´Ovo until April 4. vorpsi presented her tome "It´s The Land Where No One Dies" - the first book that Einaudi publishing house has produced from a French translation, despite the fact it was originally planned and written in Italian. The voice comes from Albania to tell its everyday life the way no one has done so far, Vorpsi said. According to the author, the translated work of Albanian writers offer a certain image of the country almost always present it in an epic tone. "Albania is a strange country, it suffers from an odd megalomania, and probably that is why there is no word for humbleness in Albanian. That is why the book is dedicated to this word," she said. The story is about women and for women because it is natural for her. "I lived with my mother, my father was a political prisoner. The narrator is a girl who is growing up and facing challenges in life," Vorpsi said. Ornella Vorpsi was born in Tirana in 1968. She was 22 when she escaped to Italy, where she stayed for six years and attended the Fine Arts Academy in Milan. She has lived in Paris over the past decade, but still writes in Italian. "I am not ready to face the Albanian public opinion. My books have already been very much criticised, some people have felt offended by them," she added. (ANSamed). RED

(ANSAmed) - NAPLES, APRIL 2 - The real confrontation between the East and the West, tradition and modernity is consumed in bed because in sexual intercourse all moral values take shape, according to Lebanese writer Rashid Daif, whose book "To Hell with Meryl Streep" was presented here yesterday during the 17th edition of international book fair Galassia Gutenberg in Naples. Daif´s book, which was officially subjected to censorship but has enjoyed notable public success, talks about sex, television, men, women, husbands, wives, mothers-in-law and neighbours. "The fact that my book has many readers shows that in the Arab world there are two tendencies: one aiming at hiding issues, the other at trying to bring them out," Daif said. Religion, politics and sex were the issues most difficult to face in today´s Arab world, according to Daif, despite the fact that Arab literature has discussed physical love ever since its very beginning. "It is enough to think of The Thousand and One Nights, a book much more read than sacred texts. It is necessary to return to the roots of Arab culture and literature, because returning to the origins would mean moving towards truth," he said. Daif´s book "demonstrates that censored books have more readers, especially today when the Internet allows for avoiding any type of prohibition," said Isabella Camera d´Afflitto, Professor of Arab Literature, who has been committed over the past 20 years to translating and spreading Arab literature.

(ANSAmed) - NAPLES, APRIL 2 - The impact of the media on public opinion and on the changes in society must be toned down and what is important today is the information means not the word or the message, according to Assem El Kersh, editor-in-chief of the English-language Al Ahram Weekly. "Everyone thinks that the media can perform miracles but this is not so. Information has its power but cannot force changes, it can cause emotive reactions but cannot determine events," El Kersh said. He made the statement on the sidelines of the round table ´Democracy of Information in the Arab World Countries´´ organised by ANSAmed as part of the 17th edition of the international book fair Galassia Gutenberg in Naples. "Much has changed over the past years, the times of direct state control on the media have ended. With new technologies such as the Internet and satellite televisions everyone can stay informed. The problem is the access to these technologies," he added. Although official censorship was abolished in Egypt 30 years ago, what persists today is auto censorship, according to El Kersh. "Governments cannot keep pace with today´s news flow, so today the challenge is in the competitiveness," he said. (ANSAmed). RED-KTX

(ANSAmed) - NAPLES, APRIL 1 - "I refuse the idea that the Lebanese press was exploited to oppose the anti-American forces in the Middleast region", said Gisele Khoury in reply to a question from the public during the conference ´Democracy of information in the Arab World´ at Castel dell´Ovo in Naples. "We are journalists and not US agents. The popular march of March 14 was a Lebanese initiative that brought one and a half million in the streets. An event made possible not by Bush but by Samir Kassir, Lebanese martyr and martyr of the Syrian opposition", concluded Khoury, Al Arabiya tv journalist, and wife of Kassir. "There are many barriers imposed upon the local and foreign press in Syria. We cannot talk about the President, the Muslim Brotherhood and the internal opposition", added George Baghdadi, editor in chief of Cham Press Center in Damascus, who participated at the same conference. "The Syrian press lives with big difficulties since the coming into power of the al Baath party even if today we can talk about security forces. But the barriers remain, and soon a new law on the press, which will put stronger ties on Internet press, will be passed". According to Khalid Chaouki, journalist of Ansamed, "finally Arab intellectuals have the possibility of self-criticism. This helps to create a strong trend on the internet, in the forum and gives the chance for writers and intellectuals to be heard". (ANSAmed). KTX

(ANSAmed) - NAPLES, APRIL 1 - "Society owes to a man who gave his life for democratic passion". This is the memory of Samir Kassir, the Lebanese journalist and historian killed on June 2 2005, in the words of Khaled Fouad Allma, columnist of daily ´La Repubblica´ in his intervention to the conference ´Democracy of Information in the Countries of the Arab World´ at Castel dell´Ovo in Naples. "Democracy in the arab world", said Allam, "is not only a political issue, but also a anthropological and cultural one. The battle for freedom and democracy is also a cultural battle". "When someone speaks about democracy of information it is necessary to think of Samir Kassir and all of those who died in the name of freedom of the press in the Arab World", said Assem El Khersh, editor in chief of the English version of Egyptian weekly Al Ahram. "We are facing many challenges. For example, we live in a time with plenty of means of information, but the number of people who read is declining". According to El Khersh "means of information can help open the route to democracy". For his part, Lebanese journalist Ziad Talhouk, who also attended the conference, spoke about the press situation in his country. "Beirut has always been at the centre of press freedom in the Arab world and this has disturbed the other close Arab governments", he said. "We should not forget that for 15 years after the end of the civil war there were many pressures on the Lebanese press imposed by a puppet government. But during this period there were journalists like Samir Kassir, who fought for freedom in Lebanon, and in other countries such as Syria". "Kassir, concluded Talhouk, paved the way and today, despite the difficulties, we are optimistic that through the freedom of press we can reach a real independence, stronger than the one obtained in 1943.

(ANSAmed) - NAPLES, APRIL 1 - The 17th edition of the Galassia Gutenberg Fair opened today, dedicated to the memory of Samir Kassir. The Lebanese historian and journalist, killed in a car bomb on June 2 last year in Beirut, was an host at the 2005 edition of the Book Fair. His voice was remembered through two books and the story of his wife, Al Arabiya tv journalist, Gisele Khoury. "Samir had a very precise idea of Italy", she said, "for him there is Italy on one side and the rest of the world on the other. About his trip to Naples, he told me it was his first political victory. The only thing that troubled him was that in Italy you can no longer smoke". This personal memory told by Khoury introduced the two books, ´Arab unhappiness´ (L´infelicità araba) and ´Spring´ (Primavera), for a democratic Syria and an independent Lebanon, a collection of editorials signed by Kassir, published in the Al-Nahar daily. The publishing house Mesogea has translated the books in Arabic and they are now available. (ANSAmed). KTX

(ANSAmed) - NAPLES, MARCH 30 - Italy lacks a cultural policy towards Arab countries, with opportunity left entirely to individual initiative. This is a limit which, apart from doing little for intercultural dialogue, impedes real understanding and does not favour economy and business. These are words of Isabella Camera d´Afflitto, Professor in Arab Literature at the La Sapienza university who has been working for more than 20 years on translation and popularization of Arab culture. For a second year in a row, she will be moderating the ´literary cafe´ within the book fair Galassia Gutenberg, between April 1 and 4. "Galassia Gutenberg is an important meeting which is very useful, also thanks to the great attention it pays on the Arab literature, especially this year. In this sense it could become a permanent point of reference," Camera d´Afflitto said. At Gutenberg, Arab literature seems to replace its ´usual´ position in a niche with a more general position. "Yes, our sector is still believed to be ´of niche´ despite the fact that many things were done in the past 10-15 years," Camera d´Afflitto lamented. This is due to an attitude of superiority which, the professor said, is typical of European, not only Italian, orientalists. Even now when people speak of dialogue between cultures, the value of literature as a vehicle of knowledge does not seem to be fully appreciated. "I repeat it all the time, literature is fundamental to know the other, most of all to those who work on Italian culture in those countries," said Camera d´Afflitto, who received this year the Premio Grinzane Cavour award for translation. "If we were less provincial, much more business would have been made, culture would have helped economy. Often people interested in translating Italian authors in Arabic, for example, contact me to ask whom to turn to for the rights." It is a gap to fill in a territory where there is, the professor noticed, a particular interest for Italy. There are experts in Italian studies in Egypt and thousands of children study Italian, while much was done in Libya between the 1950s and the 1960s, or more recently in Morocco and in Lebanon which has always had a big interest for Italian culture, not to mention what Italian authors are translated in other languages - Calvino, Moravia, Pirandello but also Tabucci, Baricco and Dario Fo.(ANSAmed).

(ANSAmed) - NAPLES, MARCH 29 - The president of the Galassia Gutenberg Association, Franco Liguori, today presented the 17th edition of the international book fair Galassia Gutenberg, which will take place in Naples´ Castel dell´Ovo from April 1-4. The topic of this year´s edition is ´Rosa dei Venti´ (Rose of the Winds), a metaphor for the compass rose indicating east, west, north, south, the world´s centres and peripheries. ANSAmed, the Mediterranean news service of ANSA which is based in Naples, will organise on the opening day a round table titled ´The Democracy of Information in Arab World Countries´, to be attended by representatives of Southern Mediterranean countries. Lebanese journalist Gisele Khoury, the widow of Lebanese historian and journalist Samir Kassir assassinated in Beirut in 2005, will be guest of honour. "The Arab world knows 85 percent of the Western world, while we know only three percent of the Arab world - and if we want to live together we should get to know each other better," Michele Capasso, president of the Mediterraneo Foundation, said. "Naples should pass from tolerance to knowledge, a different concept, much more fascinating and deep," Naples´ mayor Rosa Russo Jervolino said expressing satisfaction with the fact that Naples will host the event. The vice president of the Regional Council of Campania, Antonio Valiante, said he hoped the fair would play crucial role in the dialogue between cultures. The heart of Naples will also become the heart of the event, turning into a "book village" with concerts and meetings. (ANSAmed) RED-KUZ

(ANSAmed) - NAPLES, MARCH 29 - The relation between freedom of information and democracy in the Mediterranean, one of the earth´s most restive regions. This is the objective of the meeting-debate organised by ANSAmed, the agency created by ANSA to spread certified and shared information from and for the Mediterranean, within the Galassia Gutenberg book fair on April 1. The fair, which celebrates its 17th edition, is dedicated to the memory of Lebanese journalist Samir Kassir, who spoke at Galassiàs 2005 edition and was killed weeks later. In a particularly sensitive moment, characterised by the clash between Islam and the west, elections in Israel, Hamas victory in the Palestinian elections and scenes such as those after the publishing of the cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad, the meeting on democracy and information in the Arab world will also be an occasion for an exchange of opinions on the topical themes and the perspectives for the region. Gisele Khoury, a journalist from the Arab satellite television Al-Arabija, and Kassir´s widow, will be guests of honour at the event. Ziad Talhouk, correspondent for years at the ANSA-ANSAmed bureau in Beirut, will also be present at the meeting. Talhouk witnessed the latest restless decades in the history of the Land of the Cedars. Assem El-Kersh, editor-in-chief of the Al Ahram Weekly, the English weekly publication of Egypt´s most popular daily, will talk about the situation in Egypt, which has always been at the centre of the complex network of international mediation for the Middle East. The complex and in many ways delicate situation in Syria will be illustrated by George Baghdadi, director of the Cham Press Centre in Damascus. Many experts will take part in the debate, to be moderated by ANSA´s foreign desk deputy director Giulio Pecora. Luigi Mascilli Migliorini, professor in modern history at the Orientale university in Naples, will also contribute to the debate with his experience in the field of cooperation and partnership between the two shores of the Mediterranean. Stefano Sieni from the Italian national order of journalists will present the activity to defend the freedom of press. Columnist Khaled Fouad Allam will express the point of view of an Arab intellectual who has been following very closely the political and social developments in the countries in the region.
