(ANSA) - TRIESTE, 10 NOV - "In Slovenia, culture has a special historical and social importance, and it is mainly through culture and our common language, Slovenian, that we have formed and survived as a nation," with Slovenia remaining one of the few countries in the world, perhaps the only one "to celebrate culture day as a national holiday." That is what Ambassador of Slovenia to Italy, Matjaz Longar, said today, speaking in Rome at the conference 'The poetry of the soul between local languages, borders, and freedom,' organized at the Senate of the Republic by Italian Senator Tatjana Rojc (PD). The initiative's focus was on awarding the prize to Slovenian-language poet Andreina Cekova Trusgnach, winner of the 10th Giovanni Bertacchi International Poetry and Literature Competition.
