POE.MI / Milan, Oct - Nov, 2008


poe.mi (milan, oct 21st - nov 23rd, 2008) is an exhibition and performing festival that brings writing, media and visual arts together, trying to draw some maps in the territories of artistic and literary production today in italy.

in this first edition, “tiriamo le reti” (let’s pull the nets up), poe.mi focuses on the world wide web, and especially on blogs, as new leading channel for much of the new italian poetry -- in some cases directly in touch with other foreign poets as well as in relation with other kinds of arts, and often with results and qualitative experiences that can easily be compared with traditional paper publishing.

blogs, soon after a few years they first appeared on the internet, seem to have become a very lively context and a contact point for different poetics and literary identities that, not long ago, were very far from each other and in need of a continuous mediation. at the same time, they appear to be the natural environment of literary production that uses the new dimensions and modalities offered by the net.

poe.mi takes place in three different locations in milan, each one dedicated to a specific aspect of the festival: AR.RI.VI (archivio ricerca visiva, via botticelli 8); casa della poesia (palazzina liberty, largo marinai d’italia); il punto rosso (via guglielmo pepe 14).
