The book was commisioned by the Golda Foundation to Gianni Menichetti. Gianni has not left Porto Vallone in order to continue to defend it as was Vali’s wish from barbaric onslaught and destruction through all the years to current. “At this moment I am looking out at the sea with my dogs. I don’t want to leave this valley that is truly an earthly paradise- It is my life and I want to protect it until the day I die.
The book will be presented in the same room where Vali lived when she was in New York. There were many artists there in the 80’s including Dylan Thomas. I will be there with her in my heart”
