Il Libro della Settimana presents a new book from La Biblioteca’s collection every week.
In honor of National Poetry Month, all of our book picks in April will highlight the library’s poetry collection. The Hidden Italy is a collection of poetry in regional Italian dialects. Poems are presented in their original tongue as well as translated into English, and each section gives an introduction to the dialect and region. It’s a great way to learn more about traditional ways of speaking around the country.
