Book Presentation: the volume of poetry, A New Map: the Poetry of Migrant Writers in Italy, by The Company of Women Poets, headed by Mia Lecomte.
At the beginning of the 1990s new poetic voices emerged in Italian literature, thanks to the works of foreign writers who chose the Italian language as their medium of creative expression. In this spirit these members created La Compagnia Delle Poete. This phenomenon has generated a revolution in the Italian national literature, both linguistic and thematic.
The poets, Mia Lecomte (founder of La Compagnia Delle Poete) and Candelaria Romero read from their works. Nicoletta Pireddu (Professor of Italian at Georgetown University) places the italophone literature of migration in the context of Italian contemporary poetry. Violinist Diana Le Grande Mollaioli provides a musical atmosphere for the poetry reading.
