"Letture d'Africa. Interpretazioni d'autore dal continente", il progetto Calendario 2023 di Medici con l'Africa Cuamm, ci regala una gradita sorpresa: Andrea Mongia, illustratore delle 12 tavole dedicate ad altrettanti capolavori della letteratura africana, ha ottenuto la medaglia d'oro alla 65edizione della mostra annuale della Society Of Illustrators, nella categoria Institutional. Il prossimo gennaio Mongia volerà a New York per ricevere il premio. Una gioia anche per il Cuamm che, con il calendario, contribuisce a promuovere, ogni anno, un'idea positiva dell'Africa, diffondendo forme diverse della sua cultura e bellezza. La letteratura africana, in particolare oggi, vive un meritato periodo di riconoscimento e attenzione. Anche questo è un modo per illuminare "Quello che non si vede": niente è meglio di un calendario che illustra, mese per mese, un libro e aiuta ad entrare nel vivo della contemporaneità, capirne e gustarne il senso e i valori.
