Giampiero Neri

Born in 1927, Giampiero Neri spent his childhood in the midst of World War II, which devastated his family. He began publishing in the 1960s and was quickly recognized as a major part of the Milanese school of poetry. His collected poems were published in 2007. Paesaggi inospiti (Inhospitable Landscapes) appeared in 2009, and a collection of prose poems, Professor Fumagalli  e altre figure (Professor Fumagalli and Other Figures), was published in 2012. A new collection is forthcoming in 2017. Neri still lives in Milan.
