Storia dietro l'illustrazione: Giacomo Leopardi


Giacomo Leopardi is among the most important poets and philosophers of the Italian nineteenth century. One of the precursors of Existentialism.

His extraordinary lyricism, combined with the depth of his reflection on existence and the human condition, with its contradictions and fragilities, make him a notable figure of world literature.

His words are always relevant, they are an invitation to stop and reflect on our existence in this world, so frenetic and accelerated, and on what really matters.

Leopardi's teaching leads us to appreciate essential human values, those which, like love, keep us standing and united in the search for the true meaning of life, even in the midst of difficulties.
