Giose Rimanelli and Achille Serrao met for the first time in this scant collection of sonnets written under the aegis of the gaze, of certain thematic and stylistic preferences that include the use of dialect, of a marked experimentalism and transgressiveness always undermining the classical model of the sonnet. The 'dreamed America' is finally reached with melancholy. The poems are translated by Luigi Bonaffini and Justin Vitiello.
