Sometimes in the next few months my book of poetry “Hands” will be published in a bilingual edition, Italian and English.
The translation of my poetry into Italian is very intense and captures the spirit of the work. They where done by Silvano Ferrone. In a sense the bilingual edition will be a homage to Silvano, who died very recently and very suddenly. He is very much missed, naturally for the quality of his work, but more as a good friend.
As was the original english edition, the bilingual edition will be published by Hawk Press of Linda Langford Powell. Hawk Press is the publishing house of the poet Linda Langford Powell. She is the author of two books of poetry “Mrs Icarus” and “One Breath at a Time“.
When the Italian, English edition of “Hands” (“Mani” in Italian) is published there will be poetry readings both in Florence and in Campiglia Marittima.
The reading in Campiglia Marittima will be at the very beautiful bed&breakfast Borgo agli Scudi di Federica Scardigli. Borgo agli Scudi has a large elegant central room in which Federica arranges many interesting presentations of both literature and music. The site of this bed&breakfast is www.borgoagliscudi.it
I will have more to say about this events in the future.
