actual support with the publication of 4 books of poetry a year in occasion of the festival. Year after year we have presented 20 new or up-and-coming
authors, whom we followed for the duration of the entire year. Half of these poets are under 35 and, overall, they mirror the landscape of Italian poetry under 40. Different are the geographical origins, the poetics, and the intonations of these poetic voices, which, thanks to these volumes, have
received a certain recognition, reviews, and prizes. An anthology that presents them to a new public in a different language, with ten poems for each author, an introduction, and a few biobibliographical notes, seems today the crowning achievement of so much commitment and passion.
