Home is a key arena where changes in contemporary societies become a lived experience for the individual. Forms of homemaking can be regarded as a way of dealing with social transformations, whether by positing home as a safe space immune to change, or by adapting it to the requirements of modernization and globalization. The issue of (voluntary or forced) mobility looms large in debates on home, as, for instance, the current migration crisis or the demand for maximum flexibility and mobility of employees in the neoliberal economy shows.
Il pubblico della poesia (Cosenza: Lerici), edited by Alfonso Berardinelli and Franco Cordelli, was published in 1975. It is the first anthology to consider the poetic generation that appeared after 1968. The novelty of these poets was characterised in three main ways: the interruption of the linear relationship with Tradition; the «tendency towards the fast dissolution of the sociocultural and ideological figure of the Author»; and a change in the literary field. As argued by Berardinelli in the introduction: «[...] The Self that produces poetic texts in these years no longer resembles that of the great tradition of the twentieth century, and probably not even that of the author’s fathers and older brothers of the preceding twenty years ».
