The Egyptian Diplomatic Club, in cooperation with the Italian Embassy in
Cairo, hosted a presentation and panel discussion of the book *Through the
Diplomatic Looking Glass: Books published by Italian diplomats since 1946*,
by Pasquale Baldocci and Stefano Baldi, a Diplo faculty member. This
volume, published by Diplo in cooperation with the Italian Ministry of
Foreign Affairs, is the first in the series “Diplomats as Writers”.

During the event, Dr Mostafa El Feky, Chairman of the Foreign Affairs
Committee of the Egyptian Parliament, suggested that in contemporary
international relations, culture has become the true indicator of the
international ranking of each country. Therefore, diplomats should extend
the domain of their work to include publications and creative works of art
in general. The Italian Ambassador to Egypt, Mr Claudio Pacifico, commended
the initiative of the Egyptian Diplomatic Club to host an event presenting
the literary works of Italian diplomats, and suggested that a similar
symposium be organized in Rome to present the creative works of Egyptian
diplomats. Counselor Amr Aljowaily, member of the Board of Directors and
President of the Social Committee that presided over the event (and a Diplo
faculty member) announced that he is preparing a book on the writings of
Egyptian diplomats. He invited authors in that domain to take part by
providing data about their publications, and proposed that this should be
done in cooperation with DiploFoundation.
