Although these are not all the documents that testify to the passage of the Armenians and their trajectory in world history, the very diverse compendium, with an objective look, since the work was supervised by two well-known historians, specialists in history and culture Armenia: Prof. Giusto Traina, Sorbonne Université, for Ancient and Middle Ages, and Prof. Aldo Ferrari, Ca Foscari University, for modern and contemporary history, who have been assisted by Dr. Inmacolata Eramo, University of Bari Aldo Moro and Dr. Paolo Lucca, University of Venice Ca Foscari, is enough as a written testimony, before humanity.
Armenia Aeterna has a publication limited to 991 copies, numbered and notarized in the European Union, and is accompanied by a study book, in 6 languages, English-Spanish, Western Armenian-Russian, and German-French, with the aim of clarifying and demonstrate all the detailed information of each document.
From now on the Calouste Gulbenkian Museum will exhibit it among its collection.
