Presentation and dialogue with the author in Italian

Filippo Salvatore's poetry amazes with its breadth of interests, again backed by a past thought. A poem that reflects the precariousness of human existence and which makes the journey more and experience of knowledge, and love, spiritual and carnal, its inexhaustible sources, so as to ensure continuous renewal of human life. A poem that sings with the most refined and refined voice of the Italian language, continually referring to Ovid, Lucrezio, Dante, Leopardi ... A poem in the perennial search for immortality, which human consciousness can push itself to imagine in a timeless elsewhere and still kept and hidden.
