Leonardo Sinisgalli, who was born in Montemurro in 1908 and died in Rome in 1981, was a rich and complex figure in the culture of the XX century.

He graduated in Engineering in 1932 in Rome, and then he worked in the field of architecture and graphics in Milan.

He was a refined poet who referred in his lines to ancestral myths and to the primitivism of Southern Italy.

He also wrote remarkable prose works, such as ‘Furor mathematicus’ (1944), ‘Horror vacui’ (1945) and some memoirs.

During the post-war period Sinisgalli, having come back from Rome, founded and directed the magazine called ‘Civiltà delle macchine’ (1953-1959).

He was also a documentarist and a populariser. He won the ‘Biennale di Venezia’ twice consecutively with his films. He produced radio programmes, such as ‘Il teatro dell’usignolo’ and ‘La lanterna’.
