The making of this book has been an incredible, generous effort from a number of VDSA members. My many thanks to all those who participated.
I remind you that the book was shortlisted for Premio Pieve 2013 and has received many praises from some of the most important Italian literary reviewers. It has been written that Valerio's book is not only a travel journal but the newest adventure story, a love story, a book of initiation, a labyrinthian hypertext.
It can be a wonderful Christmas present for yourself, your relatives and your friends.
Please notice that the book launch is our only fundraising event for 2014.
I hope you will be generous also with donations, knowing that every single cent you donate to the Association is now tax deductable and goes 100% to the activities we are promoting: assistance to young Indigenous, to refugees in detention and in the community, to homeless people, to women and girls in emergency centres.
Our "community of good intentions" is growing fast. We are working hard and we are passionate about what we are doing.
We try our best to reach out, to be generous and compassionate.
