NEW WAYS OF PRESENTING POETRY, SINCE '98
At the end of the nineties I moved my first steps, bringing poetry in the streets and in public places to meet eyes to be read. Reinventing the communication of poetry, find new ways of presenting poetry.
ASK THE DUST, ASK THE PEOPLE, HAITI, 2014
One of the children during a workshop in the Camillian mission in Croix-de-Bouquetes, Haiti, 2014 "There will be confusions, and there will be hunger; there will be loneliness with only my tears like wet consoling little birds, tumbling to sweeten my dry lips." John Fante In February / March 2014 I was in Haiti, with Gianluca Orrù di Tekla (equipped with camera, microphone and cameras), in the capital Port Au Prince, hit in 2010 by a magnitude 7 earthquake and a cholera epidemic, with over 200 thousand dead. For some years I have been giving my support to the charity auction "Speech for Haiti, born after the earthquake, for the Camillian Fathers of Turin, and I wanted to see the reality of this country, and the activities I had supported. For three weeks we were hosted in the "Foyer Saint Camille" in Croix de Bouquets of the Camillian Fathers, where there are a hospital, a church, a seminary, the lodgings of the fathers and the Foyer Bethleem: a small structure that welcomes disabled and abandoned children from parents. The area was enclosed by walls with military barbed wire and guarded by armed guards. Thus the Haitians cohabit with the "white man".
