5th International Festival of Poetry in Caltagirone

Last year I posted a writeup and photos from the 4th International Festival of Poetry in Caltagirone, Italy, and I recently received a flyer and information about this year's event, which will take place this upcoming weekend in that exquisitely picturesque and lively mountaintop city in Sicily's interior. 

Organized by some of Sicily's finest poets, Maria Attanasio and Josephine Pace, this year's festival looks like it will be even bigger. The US representative will be Chicago-based poet, translator and scholar Jennifer Scappettone, whose collaborative environmental poetry performance piece "Park," at Fresh Kills Park I blogged about earlier this summer, and Spanish poet, poet and critic Miguel Ángel Cuevas, from Sevilla, will also be reading from his work.

To all the poets, translators, artists, poetry-loving attendees, Siciliani e Caltagironesi, have a wonderful festival!
