Festival of Hope 1 / 24 April 2020

Poetry in sDreaming

Poetry in sDreaming is a virtual poetry festival created by the poet Claudio Pozzani and launched by the Genoa International Poetry Festival "Parole spalancate" in the first days of isolation for the pandemic in early March. Dozens of poets from 5 continents have sent videos of their readings, recorded specifically for this project. Given the high number of participating authors, Poetry in sDreaming will continue until the end of May on the official Facebook page "Parole spalancate".
