Dylan Thomas and Italy
(In the Beginning, painting by Gianpiero Actis)
A conference at the Alberto Geisser Library of Turin (March 25, at 6 pm ) is one of the two events created in Italy to remember the Welsh poet Dylan Thomas on the centenary of his birth.
The first conference was in Portoferraio – Elba Island – on April 26 2014 with a report on the artistic collaboration between Dylan Thomas and writer and translator Luigi Berti.
“Dylan Thomas and Italy” stands as the closing event of the celebrations held at international level throught the year 2014.
The meeting, organized by the associations Il Luogo delle Arti and Immagine & Poesia, follows the publication in Swansea of the anthology THE COLOUR OF SAYING – A Creative Writing Competition in Celebration of Dylan Thomas * – with the participation of Anna Maria Bracale Ceruti and Federica Galetto as the Italian selected poets and Lidia Chiarelli as a translator.
For the first time in Turin, scholars of Dylan Thomas’ poetry, including bookseller Massimo Trombi and 84 year old poet Manrico Murzi (who met Dylan Thomas), will speak of the Italian period of the Welsh poet and his family, who in 1947 stayed first in Florence and then in Rio Marina (Elba Island).
There will also be a special remembrance of Aeronwy Thomas, daughter of Dylan, who in 2006 visited a school in Turin, after many years of collaboration in a long distance creative writing workshop.
