In its European itinerary, the EuroLiteraTur ship landed for five days (15-19 March 2005) for a literary feast in Rome - the City of the World, invited by maestros of meaningful words and hidden significances, as Dante, Boccaccio, Macchiavelli or Tasso. On 95 Via Frattina, the rediscovered minimalist style of Enoteca Regionale Palatium replaced the initiating rooms of the clandestine writers of old times with the roman inauguration of the project, on the 15 th of March 2005. The opening debuted much more publicly and within an official frame, with the reading of a message sent by the president of Italy, His Excellency Mr. Carlo Azeglio Ciampi, in which he expressed the appreciation regarding the importance of the project.
The project was presented in Italian by the representatives of the National Romanian Literature Museum, so the Lazio press, strategically seated in the first lines, could understand the concept in its essence, both for the correctitude of the event's presentation, and for the expected impact. The message of the project made also other participants to express their opinions. Thus, other speeches and debates were made by an orator, the president of the Faculty of Letters of "Tor Vergata" University, Mr. Franco Salvatori, a leader and a delegated administrator of the partner institution, Colline Romane, Mr. Paolo Cortesini and Mr. Marina Fatelli. The students and pupils in the audience, native and suspicious critics, followed attentively the literary message of the project, analyzed and explored the virtual agora of great literary polemics.
After everything was finished, everyone turned again to Piazza San Pietro, where a great pope was looking more and more insistent towards the skies.
