“Ti porto un libro“/”Jag ger dig en bok” is a new initiative promoted by the Italian Cultural Institute and the C.M. Lerici Foundation.
We decided to donate some Italian books translated into Swedish to various institutions and organizations in Sweden, such as hospitals and nursing homes, with the hope of giving a temporary relief from the difficult moment we are living in. After the donation to Huddinge Sjukhus few months ago, today we decided to give a selection of books to Löjtnantsgården vård-och omsorgsboende in Stockholm.
Due to the ongoing pandemic, many people are forced to stay home, sometimes alone and away from their friends or relatives. Reading could be a good way to escape from reality and travel wherever we want thanks to our imagination. We hope that Elena Ferrante, Roberto Saviano, Igiaba Scego, Antonio Tabucchi, and other Italian authors could keep company to many of you, wherever you are.
