La terra e a lei concorde il mare
e sopra ovunque un mare più giocondo
per la veloce fiamma dei passeri
e la via
della riposante luna e del sonno
dei dolci corpi socchiusi alla vita
e alla morte su un campo;
e per quelle voci che scendono
sfuggendo a misteriose porte e balzano
sopra noi come uccelli folli di tornare
sopra le isole originali cantando:
qui si prepara
un giaciglio di porpora e un canto che culla
per chi non ha potuto dormire
sì dura era la pietra,
sì acuminato l’amore. 

(Mario Luzi) 


The land and in agreement the sea 
and above everywhere a more joyful sea
by the quick flame of the sparrows
and the way
of the restful moon and sleep
sweet bodies half closed to life
and to death on a field;
and for those voices that come down
escaping mysterious doors and leaping
above us like crazy birds to return
over the original islands singing:
here it prepares
a purple bed and a song that cradles
for those who could not sleep
so hard was the stone,
so sharp was the love.

(Translation R.C.)

Bio

Born in Angera (Va) in 1973, graduated in Literature, Roberto Caielli is a professional photographer and fine art printer, Italian Canon Lfp Ambassador since 2014. Already author of literary texts, he conceived photography as an ideal continuation of writing. His images move from a philosophical premise on the representation of reality, of which photography is a mirror and shadow. Among his photographic works, Skyhole, a permanent installation inside a Swiss alpine dam, Autoritratto di lago, Il tempo a casa Colombo, Film Landscape. He collaborates and exhibits at important art galleries in Italy and abroad. He lives and works in his studio laboratory in Daverio (Va) and is a teacher of photographic technique and history of photography in various educational institutions.
