Smrikva Bowl Library list is updated with over 100 new books donated by 21st SB 2016 generation... there are in total over 800 books from 65 countries...

“Va, pensiero ‘Smrikva’, sull’ali dorate”… “Go, ‘Smrikva’ thought, on golden wings” – borrowed from Giuseppe Verdi

Smrikva Bowl Library list is updated and as of today it contains over 800 books from 65 countries… it is an opportunity to share couple of words related with our library written some time ago but still valid to me…



Smrikve, July 2009 – July 2016


In 2009 we started the building of the Smrikva Bowl library. Each Smrikva Bowl player is requested to bring with him a cultural book that will remember his stay in Smrikve and will represent his culture of origin that one day guests of Smrikve will be able to consult, enjoy and discover.

Smrikva Bowl Ambassadors are today spread in 78 countries and all the continents. Historically their task was to search the talented kids in their countries of origin and invite them to play the Smrikva Bowl but from this year they are also our Cultural Ambassadors.

The old olive tree Smrikva Bowl Ambassadors plant every year is a symbol of friendship and intergenerational responsibility and Smrikva Bowl’s idea of children, sport, music and culture that are able to pass all frontiers are incorporated in the creation of this Smrikva Bowl Library.

I used to write in my first book on European Union and Cosmopolitan Democracy that we are those who represent the current civilization.

This is an important concept. Today people live an average of about 80 years. What we call civilization is mostly made up of the human knowledge we have accumulated until today, which our institutions pass onto future generations.

The books represent the greatest human memory that can help us understand what we see combined with cumulated personal experience of our daily lives.

But given the fragility of the circle of life it is very easy for people to ignore these facts and lose sight of our human knowledge. It takes just a few generations to lose this great heritage.

We have gotten used to rapid technological progress, but social and civil progress is slower and more complex. Humans learn throughout their whole lifetime, from books and schools, but we also mostly learn from our personal experiences.

Smrikva Bowl mission is to develop and spread cosmopolitan values. Love, friendship and empathy are cosmopolitan values per excellence for people and humanity…

Thanks to all Smrikva Bowl players and todays Ambassadors that are helping to build the Smrikva Bowl library.
