POETRY – Inside and Outside the Avant-Gardes

POESIA - Dentro e fuori le avanguardie

International Conference on 20th Century Italian Poetry
curated by Eny Di Iorio and Franco Zangrilli

LdM Tuscania, 12th - 13th January 2017
Tuscania, Teatro Pocci

The 20th Century Italian poetic scenario, presents numerous poets who contributed to a significant and original renewal of what Pavese used to call “The Poet’s Craft”. Some of them are famous, such as Ungaretti, Montale, or Luzi, some others are less known, but they still deserve all our attention, and recognition, like Campana, Moretti, Palazzeschi, Cardarelli and Gatto.

Poesia – Dentro e fuori le avaguardie aims at introducing us to this last group, focusing on the development of Italian poetry through a linguistic and compositional experimentalism that goes along with new themes and images.
