Why ARGIA?

This Basque-speaking weekly published on its front page of October 2009 a feature article on “Herta MULLER – THE JOURNEY TO THE 2009 NOBEL PRIZE FOR LITERATURE”

We asked San Sebastian journalist Karlos Zurutuza, to tell us something about ARGIA:

“ARGIA ASTEKARIA is a  Basque-speaking weekly which covers  Basque culture and both national and international  current affairs. The on line version (www.argia.com) offers the chance to access the information in PDF format but also a multimedia section which helps strenghthen the written info via the latest audio-visual systems.This year, ARGIA celebrates its 90th anniversary as the most veteran Basque media still alive as well as century-old (almost) archival resource on the Basque culture.”

ARGIA published before material of Romanian interest: Zurutuza, who speaks fluent Romanian is a regular contributor of ARGIA and among his articles he published one on the Romanian-speaking minorities South of the Danube, in the Balkan peninsula, that is the Vlachs of Greece, Albania, Serbia Montenegro and Bulgaria:

Quite independently of this Basque focussing on Romanian topics, the Centre for Romanian Studies (London) had published translations of Basque poetry by Bernardo Atxaga and Kirmen Uribe:

“VIATA” (Bizitzak) de Bernardo ATXAGA – Poet Basc (n.1951)

    Slow down in Maloviste we speak “limba Armaneasca” nothing else.Thank you.

  • Gelu, un arman

    Zlatko,
    ghini featsi ca nu angrapsesti (scrii) armaneashte. Ca daca o faceai, vedea toata lumea ca romaneste = armaneste si invers.

    Da` poate nici nu stii armaneste; in schimb, vad ca te pronunti.

    Asta-i tot, multumesc.
