dinner in the dark

I’ve been asked to re-launch these little news on our blog. with pleasure.

UNIVOC (the Italian Union of Voluntary Workers for the Blind) organises a dinner “in the dark”. The event will take place on 8 May inside the Taverna Ciardi restaurant in Calle dell’Aseo near the Rialto bridge, all lights will be switched off, and service will be provided by men and women who are blind. For that evening,
the people at the tables will experience what sightless individuals encounter every day. It is expected that this innovative initiative will be more instructive and thought-provoking for everyone present than any verbal explanation could ever be.

let me add that, besides experiencing the difficulties of living “in the dark”, the people at the tables may also experience the importance of trusting each other, beyond misunderstandings. life is based on trust, though we often live in suspect.

    Re books sold in Venice by their weight, at the same price of cherries ! (Ref. July 2 Buongiorno Venezia)
    I wonder how much cherry I can buy if I sold my recently published 5 books by weight ?
    WISDOM IN SMILE and STOCKHOLM STORIES. All sold at major internet shops. (The last two titles will start selling after two months. ) Check the internet shops under my name :Askin Ozcan.
    The Second Venice became No.1 among top rated books in ITALY MAGAZINE, for many months, leaving Juvental’s Satires in second place…LIGHTNING AND A BOUQUET OF ROSES contains the Prize winning poem THUNDERSTORM…Small Miracles brought compliments from H.H. The Pope
    Benedictus XVI. The latter two, are just out- so I don’t know how many prizes or cherries they will bring.
