Book about the Casa Rosso

Packed in the Bethaniënklooster in Amsterdam’s red light district got Casa Rosso owner Jan Otten (72)from Karin Bloemen the first copy of the novel. While the book was presented in front of oncle Joop, singer Gerard Joling and diet guru Sonja Bakker to the owner he wanted to express a word of thanks, but he was emotional touched. “This is not fiction, this is a real story”. Militant: “We’re just going to continue this and make another book about the theatre”.

Three and a half years ago Cor van Dijk, Director of Janot Entertainment Group (including the banana bar and Casa Rosso) suggested to make a book about the world-famous theater. “On the occasion of the seventieth birthday of Jan we wanted to write down some anecdotes for him and some intimates. We got so many comments that we have made a more complet book so that nothing is lost for the next generation. In doing so, we wanted to show that it is not just about crime in the red light district and that it is a cozy, safe neighborhood”.

The bundle that is written by Rob van Hulst and Fred Baggen, has 272 pages and looks at the history, the secrets and juicy stories of the erotic Temple.

About Frank Scheers

Mijn geboortestad Amsterdam is een prachtig uitgangspunt voor journalistiek. Amsterdam staat voor vrijheid van meningsuiting en tolerantie. Als journalist wil ik mij vrij en zonder beperkingen kunnen uiten over hetgeen zich in Amsterdam afspeelt, maar ook in de rest van de wereld. Ik schrijf zoveel mogelijk mijn eigen content, maar scan ook de rest van de wereld af naar opvallend nieuws. Dit nieuws hoeft niet altijd breaking news te zijn. Dit kan heel interessant nieuws zijn dat even belangrijk is als breaking news, maar iets minder bekend is, maar net zo belangrijk kan zijn voor de opinievorming. Naast nieuws uit Amsterdam en wereldnieuws richt ik mij ook op fraaie artikelen over politiek, mode, luxe artikelen, gezondheid, het milieu, entertainment, life style, business, onderwijs, shopping, gastronomie, reizen et cetera. Amsterdam Today is een actief online news magazine en wij brengen artikelen in het Nederlands en in het Engels. Belangrijk om te noemen is dat Amsterdam Today zich bezig houdt met Immersive Journalism. Dat wil zeggen dat wij fascinerend nieuws brengen in combinatie met virtual reality technieken. Je ervaart dan het nieuws alsof je er zelf bij bent. My hometown Amsterdam is a wonderful starting point for journalism. Amsterdam stands for freedom of speech and tolerance. As a journalist, I can express freely and without restrictions on what is happening in Amsterdam, but also in the rest of the world. I write my own content as much as possible, but also scan the rest of the globe for striking news. This news doesn't always have to be breaking news. This can be very interesting news that is as important as breaking news, but slightly less known and just as important to the way people form their opinions. In addition to news from Amsterdam and the world news I also write about articles on politics, fashion, luxury, health, environment, entertainment, life style, business, education, shopping, wining and dining, travel and so on. Amsterdam Today is an active online news magazine and we bring articles in Dutch and in English. Important to mention is that Amsterdam Today deals with Immersive Journalism. That means that we bring fascinating news in combination with virtual reality techniques. You will experience the news as if you were there. Contact: Website | More Posts
