Luigi Fontanella reads from Land of Time: Selected Poems 1972-2003.

“Luigi Fontanella moves between countries as an Italian who has lived in the United States for many years but returns often to his native land. In this collection, he draws on his experience in both countries, and he is also forever moving between past and future, between those people and places of the present and future by whom and in which he will perhaps be best remembered. Fontanella’s poetry is rooted in both a profound critical awareness of the labor of poetry, and a wide embrace of life’s labors – and joys, all of which merge in his “pure azur memory.”
