This is the first published conversation with Andrea Zanzotto since 2001. How does poetry change when the poet grows old? And how does the world around him change? These are two of the questions the poet asks himself, while also dealing with themes of lifelong interest: climate change, destruction of the landscape, the fragility of the body… These elements are traumas of an unknown nature, from which “rehabilitation” never ends. The two encounters took place in August and October 2006, while his 85 glorious years were being celebrated throughout Italy. Two fine previously unpublished poems contribute to making this an invaluable book of highest emotion.
