Giuseppe Cappello, Vita nuova.
Benvenuta al mondo, by Stefano Cazzato
In his last anthology, dedicated to the birth of Beatrice's daughter, Giuseppe Cappello succeeds in the difficult business of sharing with others an intimate and blissful happiness decided to words the task of bringing a sense, the beauty, the wonder of a new life from space private to public.
People used to say that the private is public, perhaps to dissolve too quickly the first in the second, and to dissolve and devalue the sentiment in the political. Then came the reflux times in which the political disappeared in favor of small bourgeois joys, to live solitarily and sometimes selfish. So they tried to re-open the communication between the two worlds, in the knowledge that you could wish for, love and defend the private joys, continuing to keep a watchful eye on the social, to cultivate a thirst for the future and history, to take care of others because only then it also deals with oneself and one's dependents.

Born as a rethinking of an actual trip to Alexandria in Egypt, which took place between spring and summer of 1895, the Aleksandrijskie pesni [of Alexandria] Songs of Mikhail Kuzmin represent the poet's debut (and prose writer, and playwright, and, last but not least, musicologist) on the literary scene of a Petersburg he saw slowly, but surely, go down the symbolism of the era, with Aleksandr Blok to make as chief interpreter. We are in 1906 and the intention of Alexandria Canti already appears programmatic before aesthetic program explained in a few years (1910) by Kuzmin in the manifesto Of beautiful (or 'magnificent') clear: to exploit the extraordinary insights of the "culture of the verse "inauguarati from Symbolist season, to provide a writing that necklines miraculously from smoke and sorties metaphysical (and their outcomes in verse), distinguishing itself, however, for formal clarity, silhouetted outlines, diction precise and safe control of the means of expression.
