Zavattini (640 words)
Cesare Zavattini was born in Luzzara in 1902 and died in Rome in 1989.

His most successful poems are inspired by an authentic choralism, between card games, sex, food, the struggle for life, in a context in which "vulgarity" reveals not only a taste for provocation, but is seen as an inherent property of language and of the author's innate disposition toward the whole of life.
