Celebration night celebrating the author's 75th birthday
To honor Peter Turrini's 75th birthday, Literaturhaus in Krems held a gala event for the author last night, which also participated in Governor Johanna Mikl-Leitner.
"Peter Turrini found his home in Lower Austria, which makes us happy and it also makes us proud," stressed the head of state in his welcoming words. Turrini, born and raised in Carinthia, discovered Weinviertel many years ago and moved to Unterretzbach near the border with the Czech Republic, it worked out, recalling that this may be a blow or a fate, for "Turrini with his works and in his life was often a frontier worker. "It is nice that Lower Austria is a wonderful place for well-being, work and life for Turrini. Lower Austria has become a place of retreat that provides strength, many of the artist's well-known works have been created here," she pointed out. "Turrini's artistic work is a big treasure for us in Lower Austria, which we want to preserve in a responsible way. The archive of the day was founded with Peter Turrini's editor. Lower Austria is thus not only home to the great artist Peter Turrini, but above all his home of art, "said the provincial governor. He would like to keep in touch with Lower Austria at the most intimate, concluded Mikl-Leitner.
At the event, ua also spoke Christine Rigler, editor of a biography of Peter Turrini and director of contemporary archives, also read from the successful Turrini "Josef and Maria".
