"We wanted to promote and explain the values of the past to those who live in the present"

Mentioning that they explained the past and the present of Fatih District in the book, Fatih Municipality Mayor Hasan Suver said, "Fatih isn't like any other place in the world. In terms of both geography and topography, this place has diligent creation. It is a place where two seas merge and continents meet. These were all passed down to us as heritage. Those who live in this city thereafter have to deserve it. This is because this location says something to us: "I'm the creation of a huge wisdom. You need to act according to this creation". It constantly tells us of the harmony of people and the place. In order to understand this, we need to get to know this city. For example, we used to have gentlemen of Istanbul and ladies of Istanbul. They were living and representing the culture of this city as the residents of this city. However, this is slipping off of us. We should at least let those living in the present know about the values of the past so that we can regain, keep, acquire and live through that culture. We wanted to let them know what they represent and what they are responsible for".

"Our President is an Istanbul Enthusiast"

Mentioning that he began his book's prologue as "I dedicate this to Mr. President who is a great enthusiast of glorious Istanbul", Mayor Hasan Suver said, "Our President is an Istanbul enthusiast. I define our President as the great enthusiast of glorious Istanbul. I believe I share the same feeling with him though not as much as he does. Upon completion of this work, we had a chance to see each other owing to the week of libraries. I presented the book to our President. He liked it, he was happy to see it. He said thank you".
