They (Not) Always Remember. Round Table Discussion About Patrizia Vicinelli’s Poetry


In Villa Aldini, in collaboration with Patto per la Lettura di Bologna, within the Inosservanza festival curated by the Archivio Zeta theatre company, there is going to be a round table discussion to talk and think about the presence of Patrizia Vicinell’s work in the contemporary poetical context. The meeting is curated by Lorenzo Mari, poet and translator, and Beatrice Seligardi, comparative literature scholar, and will be attended by poets Loredana Magazzeni, Rosaria Lo Russo and Alberto Masala. 



Lorenzo Mari lives and works in Bologna. He published some poetry books, among which Querencia (Oèdiopus, 2019) and Tarsia/Coro (Zacinto, 2021).

She is the author of essays and articles, such as Lightfossil. Sentimento del tempo in fotografia e letteratura (Postmedia Books, 2020). She collaborated with the Cineteca di Bologna as an instructional tutor. Currently she is a university tutor at the University of Parma. 


Rosaria Lo Russo, poet, performer, translator and essayist, was born in Florence, where she lives, in 1964. She teaches, reads, writes and criticizes her own and others’ poems – in this case, she rewrites them by performing: poetry is her art and her craft, her spiritual and material experience.
