“Who are we?”
you ask me now...
Marco Pelliccioli populates his poetry with a wide variety of characters. The place is crowded, one figure after another rooted in the obscenity of our modern age passes by you, visibly unaware of the fundamental changes this era is inflicting on them. They are small representations, fragments of events, expressionistic portraits of characters in their trivial daily existence. Pelliccioli draws inspiration from personal mishaps, historical tragedies and the many news stories that constantly amaze or shock us in different ways. As a reader, it is easy to become absorbed in the apparently still extraordinary lives of ordinary people, their wounds and wrinkles, their sinister grace. Pelliccioli has published three collections and a novella that won him several awards and many nominations.
