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.
