INGIROPARLANDO AND FRANCESCO PETRARCA

Sponsors: Consortium of Municipalities in the Mountain Area of Casentino, Municipality of Chiusi della Verna, Province of Arezzo. "Rerum Vulgarium Fragmenta" is a book consisting of six sonnets taken from the original manuscript (Codice Vaticano Latino, no. 3195), written to mark seven-hundred years from Francesco Petrarca's birth. Edited by Alessandro Piras, it was published by the Associazione Culturale Autori Contemporanei under the patronage of the Ministry of National Heritage and Culture, of the Municipality of Arezzo and of the Italian Institute of Culture in Stuttgart "Italienisches Kulturinstitut Stuttgart". The book, which was printed by the paint factory Edison of Rassina (AR), is illustrated with reproductions of the engravings of Lorenzo Bruno, Livio Ceschin, Ivo Mosele, Ferdinando Piras, Lanfranco Quadrio, Roger Savinio. The work was presented by Senator Grazia Sestini, assistant secretary of Welfare. During the presentation the writer Gloria Letizia De Fraja read the sonnets related to the engravings and Laura Capaccioli presented her book "Ingiroparlando", a communication handbook. The presentation of the book was followed by the opening of the Exhibition on Engravings and their origins.
