    The Italian Cultural Foundation of Casa Belvedere promotes the novel of Anthony Di Renzo “Trinàcria: A Tale of Bourbon Sicily.” In order to support the release of this novel, there has been created an online fund-raising campaign by Roberto Ragone, a means through which he intends to raise the necessary funds to cover the book’s editing, design, printing, promotion, and distribution. The goal is to raise at least $5,000 by December 13 and they are close to reaching it!
