Scope and Contents

This volume was realized for the inauguration of Isgro's "The Bees if the Torah" and a concert by Moni Ovadia for the re-opening of the Belforte Bookshop in Livorno after 63 years of closure as a result of the wartime regime. The press has resumed publishing Hebrew texts under the name of Belforte which was first started in 1805. The first part of the book is an illustrated time line of Italian political and cultural history in the world, in Italy and in Livorno and the relationship of the Belforte press to these events. The second part of the book illuminates the work of Emilio Isgro who represents the "Jews as bees that extract the honey from the Book and carry it to the various groups that they encounter in their journeys." isgro is interviewd in depth by Silvia Guastalla. -- Source of annotation: Marvin or Ruth Sackner.
