Fiorentini abusivi

Il carteggio Ercole Ugo D'Andrea-Francesco Tentori (1972-1995)
  • Edited by:
  • Enrica Colavero,

Through a precious labour of retrieval, transcription and the attentive and painstaking annotation of an unpublished correspondence made up of 311 pieces, Enrica Colavero gives voice to two important and retiring Italian poets of the later twentieth century: Francesco Tentori (1924-1995) and Ercole Ugo D'Andrea (1937-2002), the last impassioned witnesses and disciples of hermeticism.
Tentori was a major translator of Spanish and Spanish-American poets and novelists; it was he who introduced Borges into Italy. Before settling permanently in Rome, he established close ties with Florence, in particular with the groups of intellectuals (writers and critics, but also painters) who frequented the Gabinetto Viessuex and the Caffè Paszkowski.
D'Andrea too was a Florentine by adoption, in view of his passion for hermeticism, but he instead chose the isolation of Galatone, in the extreme south of Puglia, where he devoted himself intensively to his studies.
From the readings presented in this book the centrality of culture emerges, but also the hopes and delusions of two unorthodox, unquiet intellectuals, seeking the time and the meaning of a life devoted entirely to addressing and serving art.
