from Guy Debord

To Giorgio Agamben
Champot, 24 August 1989
Dear Sir:

Thanks for the press clippings[1] that you transmitted to me. I am happy to learn that Italy, despite certain quite serious obstacles, is better informed than France and several other countries, which are still at the moment of "Nashist"-museographical falsifications, laughably inaugurated by the burlesque "Pompidou Center."[2]

And most particularly because I myself have had the chance to learn much in Italy.

I send you a very recent book[3] to complete your intelligent documentation.

Quite cordially,
Guy Debord
