Cardiopoetica (Italy)

Some might remember a child on a shores, when all the European breaths stopped, when our conscience was bartered for a moment of pity of Schengen area. Forgiving the centuries is hard, needs time, needs effort, needs one to be a tree holding the roots – roots that are evanescent when we have fear. Fear for the others, which remind us who we are – who we were and have always been. Probably, we do not want to face this. We do not long want to face ourselves when our souls are offshore in the night.


Is a group of three young poets from Rome (Fabio Appetito, Marco De Cave, Mariano Macale) who are neighbours in life and in friendship. They have started to make public readings since when they were teenagers gaining public recognition for their arts and ideas. They were awarded with three important national prizes – in 2013, they received the Pasolini award for their civic engagement; in 2015, the De André national award for the finest emerging poetry and in 2016 with Merini poetry award for literature research.

The group published two books in Italy, collaborating with different blogs and magazines, as well as famous Italian musicians and actors. What is more, it works for a web radio called Radio Bullets, founded by two of the most brilliant Italian journalists, Barbara Schiavulli (famous war reporter) and Alessia Cerantola (Japan Times, Panama Papers investigator). The aim of the radio is to talk about the international facts through podcasts. For its innovative approach it was rewarded by Digital Journalism Google initiative.
