Rondoni Celebrates Leopardi--CANCELED

This event has been Canceled.

Join Davide Rondoni and the Hofstra community in a celebration of the 200th anniversary of the poem “L’infinito” (“The Infinite”), by Giacomo Leopardi (1798-1837). Rondini is the director of the Center for Contemporary Poetry at the University of Bologna, Italy, and an award-winning poet, essayist, translator, novelist, playwright, and public intellectual who appears on Italian television and in various print media. Rondoni will present his book Infinito 200 (Fazi Editors, 2019), in which he examines one of the greatest contributions in the history of poetry, to show us how, in these days of trying economic and social issues, Leopardi’s “L’infinito” is more relevant than ever; it reminds us that, despite our limitations, we aspire to that which is limitless.

Following the presentation, there will be a brief reading of Rondoni’s poetry, presented in Italian, English, and Spanish.
