Personally, I hope that Georgia will reveal itself in Frankfurt in all its contradictions and all its extremes, in all its mistakes and all its splendour [....]. Because this is the only way to discover the country with its wealth of stories and people and only in this way can Georgia learn something new about itself - just like I, through the eyes of foreign friends.

Our country will have an opportunity for a whole year, in all German speaking countries, to promote Georgian culture in general and to show off all the merits and distinctions that it has. This way of doing things facilitates Georgia’s integration into the European space and the growth of its cultural recognition.
