Pentasi B China World Poetry Festival & Sophy Chen Award
CHINA IS NEAREST … THANKS TO POETRY
By Saverio Sinopoli
Dream and poetry, poetry and dream! “We must never stop dreaming,” and above all we must never stop believing to the end.
Epitacio Tongohan, a Filipino doctor, father of Visual poetry, founder of Pentasi B World Friendship Poetry with about 9000 poets from all over the world, has always had a dream, “to help build a world without barriers thanks to poetry”. And he is doing it in perfect harmony with his friend and Indian poet L Sr Prasad, also a doctor and a translator, essayist and cartoonist.After having contributed to the realization of the International Poetry Festival in Turkey, in 2015, the following year in in Italy with the association P. Neruda, then in Ghana and in Hyderabad (India), he has been working for long at the realization in Xi’an, the Ancient capital of China, of the first edition of Pentasi B China World Poetry Festival & Sophy Chen Award.
This time, supported by another dreamer, the Chinese poet, translator and publisher, Sophy Chen, who organized an interesting literary conference with Chinese poets and critics at the end of last November and a few selected poets from the world: Dr. Penpen from the Philippines, Dr. Prasad from India, Ayub Khawar from Pakistan and from Italy the poetess, translator and essayist Maria Miraglia.
Along the year which is about to end Mara Miraglia has had the honor to receive a series of prestigious international Awards: the “Certificate of World Poet Laureate”, bestowed by the Chinese organization Sophy Chen Award; the prize awarded for “her poetry as an example of life for the common good” by Pentasi B World. These awards followed the one received in Craiova, by the Mihai Eminescu Academy, and by Iwa Bogdani International Prize based in Brussels.
“It was an honor for me to be selected among the few poets from the world present at the Xi’an event, an extremely important poetic symposium”, said Doc Maria Miraglia considering that it has only been a few decades since China opened its doors to Western culture and as to Italy with translations of the most representative Italian poets and writers. Thanks to poetry this great country opens the doors to the world, to new cultures and this can only bode well, says the poetess and Literary Director of the Cultural Association P. Neruda.
