It is the war the predominant theme of this collection of poems. The war that annihilates the lives. The war that tears apart the bodies and memory. The war that divides the loves and the people. The war that destroys everything and sows death and terror. The war against which every day you resist. And poetry becomes a shout of pain and hope against the horror of war.Born in Rome in 1975, Stefano Mannucci graduated in the Faculty of Political Science at the University La Sapienza in Rome with a thesis about the photographic production of the Institute Luce. After collaborating with some magazines and Contemporary History sites, it began to publish several essays about photography during the years of World War II, the period of Italian colonialism, the history of the Istituto Luce, trying to find in the official photographs those details and clues that describe the social reality beyond the propaganda message. He is also the author of several short stories, a short noir novel and several poems - written between 1990 and 2010 - about love, memory and war.
