Life and work of the prominent Hungarian Albanologist Baron Ferenc Nopcsa

At the premises of the Albanian Embassy in Budapest, the life and work of the prominent Hungarian Albanologist Baron Ferenc Nopcsa were commemorated through the promotion of Györgyi Gyurkovics's book "Baron Franc Nopcsa - The Hungarian King of Dragons". In his welcoming speech to the guests, Ambassador Spasse praised the work of Baron Nopcsa for the Albanian studies and quoting the scholar Moikom Zeqo, said that "Albania for Nopcsa is a Fata Morgana of his fantasy and creative power ... a fabulous country in the kingdom of ideas ... a Platonic idea of an endless and terrible loneliness... because, in the civilized Europe, his heart was lost and only in Albania he 'could be born again as a wild beast.' The author Gyurkovics, through the pictures, illustrated Nopcsa's life and the long way towards preparation of the book. As one of the attendees said, "Such activities are necessary to revive the bonds among peoples". 14.11.2018
