Italian and English text

The landscape of Valle del Serchio, in the vicinity of Lucca, has revealed itself as a source of well-being and inspiration for many past artists. A good example is that of Pascoli, who found there both an idyllic landscape and a cure for the Great Sickness that plagued him. The painter MarceIlo Bertini was inspired by the spirit of the illustrious poet, rediscovering their human similarity in the sentimental attachment to a place, finally discovering on canvas the quiet and peace that Pascoli loved so dearly. What emerged was a common poetic origin between words and images: wonder and awe in the face of the silence that surrounds all things.
This volume begins with introductions by Riccardo Nencini, Cristina Acidini, Stefano Baccelli, and Guelfo Marcucci, followed by contributions from Umberto Sereni (Efficacia e vitalità del “filtro” pascoliano/Efficacy and Vitality of the Pascolian "Filter"), Giovanni Faccenda (La natura, paradiso dell’anima/Nature, Paradise of the Soul), and Giovanna Maria Carli (Intense evocazioni, trepidanti atmosfere/Intense Symbolism, Troubled Environment), Nicola Nuti (Segno poetico e parola dipinta/Poetic Symbolism and Painted Words). The appendix contains a critical anthology and a bibliography.
