An intercultural calendar for 2004, marking religious and lay festivities celebrated by different cultures, has just been released by Roman publishing house Sinnos. Along with Christmas on 25 December, it will tell you that the Chinese New Year is on 22 January, the Hindu year starts on 21 March, and that Hindu Deity Krishna's birth is celebrated on 6 September. Every month also features a traditional recipe from different countries such as Romania, the Philippines, Albania and the UK written both in the original language and in Italian. The calendar is aimed primarily at children, and hopes to promote better integration between different ethnic communities in Rome. It is available for free in schools and libraries, and can be bought for €6 in bookshops in Rome, such as Bibli at Via dei Fienaroli 28 and Mel Giannino Stoppani in Piazza SS Apostoli 65.
