The unpublished edition of the Maxim Gorki’s handwritten newspaper “Sorrentinskaya Pravda” was presented in Naples
April 4, 2019, Naples, Moscow. In Naples (Campania, Italy) has been presented an exclusive edition of the “Sorrentinskaya Pravda”, the handwritten newspaper, produced by Maxim Gorky, his family and friends while the famous Russian author was living in Italian Sorrento. The four issues of this original work created in 1924 have not yet been published in full.
The publication was prepared by the Association Conoscere Eurasia in collaboration with the Institute of world literature of the Russian Academy of Science, with the support of Banca Intesa and is dedicated to the 150th anniversary of the birth of the great writer. It was celebrated in 2018.
The book not only reproduces the pages of the “Sorrentinskaya Pravda” with all handwritten illustrations, texts, design and layout, but also contains scientific articles and comments revealing historical, literary and biographical events of that time. Rigorous research work carried out specifically for this publication unveils a deep and comprehensive view at this collective creation, led by Maxim Gorky.
"Maxim Gorky perfectly shows a beauty that can be born from the meeting of culture of Russia and Italy, said the President of Banca Intesa, the President of the Association Conoscere Eurasia, Antonio Fallico. We celebrated 150 years of his birth and it is a great honor for us to contribute to the perpetuation of his creative vision of Sorrento and of Campania, which he loved so much. This edition is not just a reference for the old days, but a feeling of continuous connection of times, involvement in the great past, to life itself in all its diversity."All press-releases
