YEREVAN, May 19, /ARKA/. The first tourist guide-book about Armenia
and Nagorno-Karabakh in the Italian language was presented Tuesday in
Yerevan. It was compiled by Nadia Pasqual, an expert from Travelmark
marketing company with the support of Armenian National Competitiveness
Fund and Nagorno-Karabakh Tourism Department.

Nadia Pasqual said the Armenian people have interesting
historical-cultural traditions which should be promoted at Italy's
tourist market. According to her, many Italian tourists would like to
visit Nagorno-Karabakh and Armenia and they need relating information
and in this sense the guide-book is a serious contribution.

According to her, the guide-book is actually the first source of
information about Armenia's and Nagorno-Karabakh's culture, history
and tourist sites in Italian.

She said Azerbaijani ambassador to Italy protested the publication
of the guide-book, but he was told to first read it. The 350-page
guide-book presents the history, culture and religion of Armenia and
Nagorno-Karabakh.
