Roberto Amato

(Italy, 1953)

Roberto Amato did not publish his first collection of poems until he was fifty. He then quickly became one of the most original voices in contemporary Italian poetry. His poetry is light in tone and is characterised by simplicity of style, yet all his poems at the same time convey the complexity of life, death, human contact, relationships, faith and love. His work subtly raises questions about the world around us, which appears to be self-evident as do the human being and life itself, as a consequence of Amato's self-mocking tone.
