September 2009

The regional conference regionale of the P.E.N. Club - Poets, Essayists, Novelist (2006, 2007 e 2008) which takes place in Trieste during October.
We are particularly satisfied as in 2008 the organizers of the event (led by Prof. H. Martelli, the president) accepted our proposal to dedicate a space to the poet Srečko Kosovella and his poetry. On Sunday morning a traveling reading was organized entitled La Poesia e il Carso (Poetry and the Carso) which culminated in a visit to the poet’s birthplace in Tomaj, Slovenia. During a brief inaugural speech at the Chamber of Commerce, Vlasta Polojaz emphasized that Kosovel should be considered “the poet” and not just “the poet of the Carso”, which seems reductive in the face of the greatness of his vision and poetic contribution, both of which go beyond his local setting and onto a European scale.
