The Italian Cultural Institute of Prague is hosting, from 1 July to 31 August, a highly original exhibition featuring ‘portraits’ of the voices of seventeen great Italian poets and poetesses of the 20th century: Giuseppe Ungaretti, Eugenio Montale, Pier Paolo Pasolini, Amelia Rosselli, Edoardo Sanguineti, Alfonso Gatto, Giorgio Caproni, Franco Fortini, Sandro Penna, Alda Merini, but also contemporary poets such as Antonella Anedda, Chandra Livia Candiani, Carlo Bordini, Mariangela Gualtieri, Valerio Magrelli, Claudio Damiani and Maria Pia Quintavalla. The portraits are spectrograms created by the curator Giovanna Iorio from a recording of the voice of the poet reading his composition.

All the portraits are accompanied by the Czech translation and a QR code through which the visitor will be able to listen to the original voice of the author/author from which the portrait was generated. A unique opportunity therefore to live intensely through image, voice and translation the experience of the most engaging Italian poetry. The exhibition celebrates the voice of the poet and its eternal beauty through an effective synesthesia of image, sound and word.
