translated by Anthony Reid

Love for his native city, Venice, is the hall-mark of this poet's work.

Boys, the lifeblood of a dying Venezia, provide a unifying theme. Like Japanese haiku, these poems often encapsulate much in a tiny compass. With a few brush-strokes the poet can bring alive for us Campo San Giacomo, his own beloved square. The magic and music of these verses and their haunting nostalgia is echoed in Martin Pitts' sensitive linocuts.
