Anteo Edizioni Publishing House in Italy’s Reggio Emilia city has recently published the work “Ho Chi Minh voi nhung buc thu mong muon hoa binh cho Viet Nam” (Ho Chi Minh with letters wishing for peace for Vietnam).

This is the result of a translation project into Italian language from the original Vietnamese version of the same name by Sandra Scagliotti, a researcher on Vietnam, and Tran Doan Trang, an overseas Vietnamese in Italy.

Previously, in May 2020, the Su That (Truth) National Political Publishing House published the original Vietnamese version by Dr. Nguyen Anh Minh, who collected and selected President Ho Chi Minh's letters written from 1945 to 1969 during the resistance wars against French colonialists and American imperialists.

The letters were sent by the Vietnamese revolutionary leader to the Presidents of France and the US as well as many politicians, soldiers, prisoners, immigrants, young people, and relatives of soldiers. In those letters, Ho Chi Minh expressed his wish for peace and happiness for all nations, laid bare and condemned war crimes caused by French colonialists and American imperialists, and called on people around the world to support the just struggle of the Vietnamese people.

Sandra Scagliotti said the messages in President Ho Chi Minh's letters left a deep impression on many generations of young people in Europe in the 60s and 70s of the last century.

According to her, for Italians who support peace and progress, Vietnam has been truly an example of the nations in the struggle against domination and oppression in the world./.
