The glows of childhood, the secrets that time opens up for an instant: Mencarelli’s poetry is made of this. Side by side with his Roman childhood, its games, its corners, landscapes and faces irrevocably transformed by time, the themes of Mencarelli’s poetry also belong to his present: stories and people and small details of life to which his poems bear witness – “in a corner there’s someone writing / his life is made of yours”. Intense pages are dedicated to the Bambino Gesú Children’s Hospital in Rome, where he worked as an orderly.
