TREDICI AWARD 2014

Foreword by Dante Maffia
Afterword by Ivano Mugnaini

What is proudly deprecable here, finally? The dissipation, the scandal, the drifts, drugs, tormented Sapphic loves, madness, the writing itself, supreme vice? This book is a path in the youth cultures that have passed through three decades with their myths, experience, falls and resurrections: the psychedelic and visionary Seventies, the Movement of 1977, punk and post-punk, the Eighties, heroin, the mal de vivre in the metropolis, scenes and characters from that world, up to the changes and the experimentations of the Nineties.

She is able to oscillate between classical allusions to the holy books and the works of great poets like Hölderlin, Baudelaire, Borges, Artaud and Celan, and then she comes to terms with the Beat Generation, with Ferlinghetti, Corso, with the philosophy of the existentialists. With immediate acceptances, repulses, with vast ignitions and immense fires, with echoes of jazz and pop music (Dante Maffia)

Of great interest, in addition to the value of this literary text, there is what might be called a sociological overview, the almost documentary value of snapshots, taken by Davino with her verses, of the transformation of our country, and the way men and women relate to the world, to dreams and needs, rules and transgressions, reality and something beyond. (Ivano Mugnaini)
