A Life: Lawrence Ferlinghetti

Descrizione

From October 7th 2017 to January 14th 2018, “A Life: Lawrence Ferlinghetti. Beat Generation, rebellion, poetry” awaits you in Brescia.

The exhibition highlights the importance of the figure of Lawrence Ferlinghetti, American poet, painter, publisher and cultural agitator with Brescian origins, in the literary scene of the fifties and sixties, and in particular within the Beat Generation movement.

The exhibition also wants to tell how this literary movement has had a particular following in Italy thanks to literary translator and critic Fernanda Pivano.

The exhibition thus becomes an opportunity to retrace the history of those years and recreate the atmosphere through print media, photos and video recordings. Many of the books and documents on display, as well as a series of Beat photographs taken by Ettore Sottsass, come from Fernanda Pivano’s exquisite archive.
