Lello Voce special guest at “Poetry Slam Cyprus 2019”

The Embassy of Italy in Nicosia is pleased to support the third edition of "Poetry Slam Cyprus", international slam poetry competition held at the ARTos Foundation in Nicosia from 18 to 19 March 2019 with the special participation of the Italian poet, writer and journalist Lello Voce.

The event, organized by the Cypriot cultural association Ideogramma, will see six international poets compete with as many Cypriot poets in a spirit of cultural and artistic exchange. Embracing different genres, approaches and traditions of poetry, the competition aims to explore the infinite potential of poetic language and to transcend the traditional barriers between poets, jury and spectators.

Special guest of the event will be Lello Voce, one of the greatest European exponents of the Slam Poetry, co-founder of the World Poetry Movement. Author of numerous works of poetry and prose, translated into 11 languages, Voce regularly participates in poetry festivals around the world with passionate readings of his poems.

With "Poetry Slam 2019" the Embassy inaugurates its calendar of cultural events for 2019, which this year will have a special focus on theater and poetry, based on the theme of the Italian Language Week 2019, "Italians on stage".
