Dear Professor Pajares,
Thanks to the support of Mrs. Calvino, the library of the Italian Cultural Institute in Paris, proudly holds the complete collection of translations of Calvino's works in different languages, as well as the equivalent Italian editions. From the Fall of this year, the library will be dedicated to Italo Calvino and all the holdings concerning his work will be accessible through our web site, which will be based at the Ecole Normale Supérieure, in Paris.
With the active support of Mrs. Calvino, we are now seeking international cooperation to acquire copies of books, essays, reviews, articles as well as unpublished material (such as PhD. Dissertations) concerning Calvino and his work.
We would be most grateful if you could send us a copy of any of the above mentioned material on Calvino, and/or the addresses of scholars likely to help us in this project.
In thanking you for your attention, we are looking forward to hearing from you, and will publicly acknowledge your support in this enterprise. In fact, we are preparing an honorary list of institutions, companies and individuals taking part in the project.
Please find enclosed our contact information, as well as our Email address.
Prof. Pietro Corsi
