IMMAGINE&POESIA (IMAGE&POETRY) is an international artistic literary movement, founded at Alfa Teatro in Torino, Italy, in 2007. Since its inception, IMMAGINE&POESIA has continued to grow. Hundreds of poets and artists from all over the world have participated, and the movement now reaches international audiences.
The MANIFESTO of the movement consists of 10 points and has been translated into 30 languages. The fourth point suggests moments of cross fertilization for artists and poets in order to support the thesis that a literary text may inspire the creation of a figurative art work and vice versa: the result is a new and complete form of art.

Conference at Binaria Book, via Setrière 34 Torino – May 12, 6 pm
You should be sorry, Bob D.
You poached the name from my dad
Cannot catch sea-son of wave
My dad was Dylan Thomas
That’s what I say, honest
Not that I want to brag
Bob Dylan doesn’t quite have
The sea shell sound of the grave
It’s all over now, baby blue

Dovresti scusarti Bob D.
Hai scippato il nome di mio padre
Non può prendere il figlio dell’onda del mare
Mio padre era Dylan Thomas
Ecco quello che dico, con franchezza
Non che voglia vantarmi
Bob Dylan proprio non ha
Il suono di conchiglia marina della tomba
E’ tutto finito ora, baby blue
Mi dispiace Bob.
