The Italian Embassy in Sudan celebrated the donation of a couple of dozen Italian books generously offered by the Publisher Marcianum Press of Venice to the Comboni Italian Center at the Comboni College of Science and Technology of Khartoum. This event is the highlight of "an important joint initiative held by the Italian publisher and the Italian Embassy in Khartoum in support of the teaching and diffusion of the Italian language and culture in Sudan", pointed out Dr. Eleonoire Laudieri di Biase, editor and leader of the project for the Venetian publisher.
