The debut novel “Rosso Istanbul” of Turkish filmmaker Ferzan Ozpetek, who has been living in Italy for many years, is one of the best sellers in Italy.

Ozpetek, who has directed so many successful films and operas, has evaluated his success to AA, and said his book was on the top three place at the shelves of Italy’s prevailing book store, “la Feltrinelli”.

Ozpetek said the third edition of the book was published last week, and the fourth edition was being published now.

“I am very happy. This is a milestone for me.” he stressed.

“Rosso Istanbul” will be on the shelves of Turkish book stores at the end of January or beginning of February, 2014, Ozpetek added.

The name of the book has been referred from the nail polish of his mother whose picture takes also part on the book’s cover.

“I plan to produce the film of this book but not now,” the successful filmmaker said.

Ferzan Ozpetek was born in Istanbul in 1959. When he was a young student in 1976, he decided to move to Italy to study Cinema History at Sapienza University of Rome. He completed his education attending art history and costume design classes at the Navona Academy. He also attended director classes at the Silvio D’Amico National Academy of Dramatic Art.
