In collaboration with Antonietta Risolò Editrice (Italy), ‘Un Anno di Noi’ made its debut through self-publishing on Amazon. This literary journey expanded its reach, resonating not only in English but also transcending linguistic boundaries with a publication in Albanian by ‘Muzgu,’ a prominent publishing house in Albania, under the editorial guidance of Mark Simoni.

The transcultural journey of this book extends further with the dedicated translation efforts of Elisabetta Aliaj. In the vibrant literary landscape of Albania, ‘Un Anno di Noi’ finds its place on the shelves of three esteemed bookstores:

  • Friends Book House – Tirana
  • Tirana Book – Tirana
  • Librari Kanceleri ‘Alketi’ – Vlore

These bookstores serve as gateways for readers in Albania to embark on the same transformative journey that captivated audiences in English. ‘Un Anno di Noi’ stands as a testament to the power of storytelling that transcends borders, bridging cultures and languages to create a shared experience of love, resilience, and the beauty found in the tapestry of human connections.
