Binario 7 theatre - magic evening
'Pagliarani, Matarrese and Saxena, poetry has no boundaries'
A full day dedicated to the contemporary poetry, last saturday.
In the Binario 7 theatre was organize the CReO, an international
symposium with discussions, readings, performance and
video-poetry. The day began at 10 in the morning with an
alternation of examples of teaching poetry, especially at the
local level, continued in the afternoon with a sigh more
international and ended in the evening with "CReO international
voice". Intruduced by Dome Bulfaro, the evening began with an
interview in video, realized by Luca paci and [A]live Poetry, to
Elio Pagliarani (born in 1927), one of the poets who most shake
up the world of Italian contemporary poetry. And, for sure, he
shakes up from video the souls of the people that was there
saturday evening. A man who tells you about himself reading his
poems, especially from the book "La ragazza Carla" (The young
girl called Carla), an experimental poem became his masterpiece.
But also when he reads "Canto d'amore" (Poem of love) or the
poems dedicated to his favourite poet: Pier Paolo Pasolini. A
man who could have known through his wrinkles, his grimaces, his
house submerged in books.
The evening goes on with a reading by Eleonora Matarrese with
music by Ryck Valli: a long poem called "Die Welt", that the
young poet (born in 1976, with origin from Puglia) read with
music. A "memento mori" disquieting and powerful, made even more
touching to the intensity of the music. At the end, guest of
honor of the evening, the indian poet Rati Saxena (in the
picture), introduced and traduced by Federico Federici. Rati
Saxena dressed an elegant black sari and she read her poems in
the original language. Poems in hindi, that are music,
placidity, levity, quiet. And life. Poems, traduced by Federico
Federici, that are words of love and friendship. The love and
the friendship that we can find in the small things, for example
insects and objects. This joyful poetry from Rati Saxena made
the international also the evening of CReO: "An important
evening - said Dome Bulfaro -that draw, through the English
language, a bridge between Italy, United Kingdom and India". An
important evening ad the end of an important day that made
global the local reality.
The day of CReO was organized by Mille Gru cultural association
curated by Eleonora Matarrese, in collaboration with the city of
Monza, the Binario 7 theatre.
