Promotion of the English edition of the book „Mandela's Code”
by Vesna Jugović de Vinča (PhD)
We have the honour to invite you to the promotion of the English edition of the book „Mandela's Code” by Vesna Jugović de Vinča PhD.
The great African and world leader gave his last interview to Ms. De Vinča - a Serbian author that transposed this last journalistic encounter with the Madiba into an original biography.
Mandela's extraordinary, complicated, exciting and above all exemplary life, his life principles, work and leadership code are the subject of this book.
The author insists that the book was written with the intent to reveal the secret behind the source of such colossal strength and power that motivated this Spartacus of the modern era, to discover and define Mandela's code in an attempt to answer the question - what would Mandela do or say today? After decades of imprisonment Mandela was released from prison speaking of forgiveness and reconciliation with determination. How can this principle be reaffirmed in modern world, and especially in the turbulent Balkans.

The Cultural Heritage of Topčider Tour
A tour organized by the Museum of African Art, memorial House of King Peter and Heritage House
Since the 19th century the urban planning of Topčider (one of Belgrade's many hills) was envisioned as a city oasis, with numerous parks, picnic spots, large areas of forest and greenery. Hidden within it are numerous villas, summer houses and art studios built at the beginning of the 20th century. Through the “Cultural Heritage of Topčider” tour we will reveal three hidden architectural gems of this area of Belgrade. We will visit two cultural institutions, which once were villas, and a very special museum. All of them share an interesting history and architecture, as well as permanent and thematic displays containing cultural heritage of national and international importance.
Walking and talking with you, are art historians Ana Knežević, Museum of African Art associate & Ivana Zatežić, Heritage House associate.
Join our trek of discovery of the cultural Heritage of Topčider Hill!
