Al centro del libro, la poesia su Kythera, immota
e mitica nel suo splendore sovrano: una sosta
di luce e di bellezza gratuita…

                                                    Irene Marchegiani


Her poetry accompanies us from the singularity
to the unequal harmony of the whole.

                                                       Paolo Febbraro


The poet is celebrating an infinite passage of the “I” toward hopes and new prospects, a “migration” indeed and a long route courageously taken to “prolong a dream”…

Luigi Cannillo is a poet whose work deserves to be read in its entirety to enable us to review, not only his own private life, but also the universality of the sky.

Giuseppe Grattacaso is one of our most talented sidereal poets; his observation reaches out to the inquiry about the boundaries of cosmos, the existence, nature, and purposes of the Creator.

Songs of Purgatory, by Alessandro Carrera:
the most recent book published by Gradiva Publications


"This book is made up of five poems and sixteen songs, and it would not exist without Ron Banerjee's translations, which have preserved, whenever it was possible, the rhythm and the rhyme scheme of the original Italian text. Songs and rhymed poetry are supposed to be untranslatable - until you find the right translator, that is, and this book is proof that I did find the right translator. "
