Abstract

Poetry is an epiphany of the gaze, an arousing vision. It opens a passage unexpectedly, where a glimmer of truth is found. The poetic word is a metaphor for this extraordinary time, revealing not only a fear of the other and the threat of death – which has become a tangible presence – but also the beauty of fragility when it is cultivated as a gesture of care for oneself and for the world. A word capable of restoring a look of wonder accords the verses of some poets, bearing witness to a different way of thinking. The text seeks to explore their voices, linked by a word that cultivates the expansion of detail and the beauty hidden between the folds of a troubling time. In a moment of estranging separation, their inspi-ration promotes an education consisting of listening and receptiv-ity, reviving silence, inviting gestures of devotion and intimacy to-wards oneself and to others and cultivating an imperishable art of life. La poesia è un’epifania dello sguardo, una visione suscitatrice. Si apre
