Italian cities to commemorate Palestinian poet Darwish

In collective reading on 13/3, ‘Poetry against Oblivion’

Eleven Italian cities will be celebrating the renowned Palestinian poet Mahmoud Darwish on the day of his birth with poetry readings, in part to raise awareness about the ‘disappearance’ of his works from Italian bookshops.

On March 13, collective readings will be held in Bari, Milan, Messina, Naples, Cagliari, Florence, Macerata, Rome, Salerno, Turin and Venice of some of the works of the poet, who died in 2008 and is considered one of the most important poets in the Arab world.

His works can still be found in Italian libraries but not in bookshops since the main publisher of his works – the Milan-based Epoché – shut down in early 2013.

The initiative by the cultural association Arabismo has been named ‘Poetry against Oblivion. Poetry Readings for Mahmoud Darwish’.

A number of bookshops and libraries of Bologna, Modena, Mestre and Venice will take part, including with a series of multilingual installations of Darwish’s books.
