In 2017, the American Shakespeare Center’s Education and Research Department will once again host Shakespeareans, scholars and practitioners, to share ideas about Shakespeare in the study and Shakespeare on the stage and to find ways that these two worlds – sometime in collision – can collaborate.

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 ».
