In "Rzymska Komedia" (Roman Comedy) the key to learn the secrets of the Eternal City is the masterpiece of the world literature "Divine Comedy" by Dante Alighieri. The masterpiece sets the rhythm of wandering and determines the structure of the book consisting, similarly as the "Divine Comedy" of 100 songs in three parts: "Hell", "Purgatory" and "Paradise". The book is embellished with the copies of beautiful wood engravings illustrating XVI century edition of the "Divine Comedy".

He is also a journalist and current director of the Italian Institute in Rome. Lately, he published books for children: "Kreska i Kropka", "Kiedys kiedys." and translation of "Pinokio". For the adult readers he published: a selection of poems" Zbite szklanki" awarded last year with the prize of the Capital City of Warsaw.

The award of the Capital City of Warsaw is a continuation of a distinction of the same title from the years 1926 - 38. The pre-war award winners include, inter alia, Leopold Staff, Tadeusz Boy-Zelenski and Maria Kuncewiczowa. After the war, there were similar awards in Warsaw but there was no persistence in the title and in the rules of granting the award. From among the award winners it is worth to mention, inter alia, Miron Białoszewski, Ernest Bryll, Juliusz Wiktor Gomulicki or Jerzy Waldorff.
