Since 2009 Lawrence Ferlinghetti, the famous American poet of the Beat Generation, has collaborated on the project of the artistic-literary movement Immagine & Poesia (Italy), choosing his poems for the artists' interpretation.

In 2013 Agneta Falk, Swedish-born poet and painter, Dean of Art at the Free University of San Francisco, has joined our project.

Italian writer Giada Diano met both the poets in San Francisco a few months ago and they selected two poems for our artists:

"Temporary Tenants" by Lawrence Ferlinghetti and "In the Blue" by Agneta Falk.

An important exhibition will be held in Torino (Italy) in October while an exhibition online for international artists is now on show on this web site.
