“O LIFE, GOD’S TERRRIBLE GIFT”
We are delighted to announce that there will be a series of events from 18-23 March devoted to the poet Gabriele D'Annunzio to mark the 150th anniversary of his birth.
The events have been organised as part of International Poetry Day by the International Institute for Opera and Poetry in collaboration with Verona University, the Comune of Verona, the Civic Library and the Masi Foundation.
The programme, attached here, includes itinerant readings, conferences, concerts and film projections dealing with the life and work of the poet.
“The greatest cook in the Abruzzi,Gabriele d'Annunzio, food and wine lover” is the title of an event with researcher Enrico Di Carlo as speaker, to be held on Saturday 23 March at 5.30 pm at Foresteria di Villa Serego Alighieri in Gargagnago di Valpolicella. Free entry, space permitting. Masi wines and Abruzzo food products will be offered at the close.
