            Andrea Zanzotto was born in 1921 in Pieve di Soligo, near Venice, and died on 18 October 2011. His ample poetic production, as well as his body essays and fiction, began in the 1940s and continue to this day. A thematic coherence and a constant experimentation with language give Zanzotto's work particular longevity. The silence of Nature, the violence of History, order and disorder, science, the sacred, human knowledge, the landscape and the literary tradition, as well as day-to-day speech: Zanzotto's poetic work and linguistic innovation traverse the great questions of Western society, and translate them into a message of hope and an ode to reality.
