Roman poems set in the Piazza Navona that stage a fundamental encounter with both Rome and Italy, one that involves writing/desiring Italy. They experiment with a number of different voices and poetic styles and they present a montage of voices of diverse characters that range from an aristocratic flâneur whose drift-work is interrupted by a bold street-walker to an old poet in agony as a result of compromising his poetry by his compliance with Fascism.

Professor of Comparative Literature at Hofstra University, Pellegrino D'Acierno serves as the inaugural Queensboro Unico Distinguished Professor of Italian and Italian American Studies. His publications include F.T. Marinetti and the Freedom of Poetry (1988); The Italian American Heritage: A Companion to Literature and Arts (1998), The Signature of D'Annunzio and Other Counter-Essays on "Dagotude" (forthcoming), Thirteen Ways of Crossing the Piazza: Rome as a Cinematic City, and Strange Loops: Cinema and Architecture as Spatial-Temporal Practices. He is now preparing for publication a collection of his earlier poems written over three decades.
