There was a golden age for the Rutigliano culture, at the turn of the 70s and 80s, where the city promoted a national poetry competition called “Azetinon d’oro”.

It was a good time for Rutigliano to have a reputation at a national level with poets who participated, not only from Puglia, but from all Italian regions. The juries were qualified, formed by university professors and well-known men of culture and appreciated journalists. Merit of the directors of that time as the mayors Pasquale Moccia, Ciavarella Nicola and the Head of Culture and then Mayor Vito Antonicelli. Then, around the end of the 80s, inexplicably on this contest fell oblivion …

But poetry is back to speak in Rutigliano the evening of September 29 us, at the Civic Museum, with the initiative promoted by the Municipal Administration – Department of Culture and Tourism- and Prof. Angela Redavid – already councilor of this Municipality in the previous administration. The event was called “Tell it with a poem – 100 thousand poets for change”, in sync and simultaneously with the International Project conceived by the poets Michael Rothenberg and Terri Carrion, in the spirit of an ideal global meeting to reaffirm the common values ​​for the peace, sustainability, justice and solidarity.

It was a beautiful evening of poetry and the large audience, of all ages and backgrounds, showed appreciation for all the exciting and intimate phases of the meeting.
It has been recalled that Rutigliano has expressed excellent poets in the past such as Giovanni Chiaia, Leopoldo Tarantini, Giuseppe D’Alessandro, Sebastiano Tagarelli (of Noicattaro but Rutlianese by adoption), Lia Raimondi, Giovanni Domenico Caso. Beyond the many who write lyrics that are placed in their drawers, there are young poets who have recently published extremely valuable poetic collections: Antonella Damato (Krinto Sida), Angelo Valenzano, Nicolaia Valenzano, Angela Redavid).

During the evening, animated by the actors Annalisa Boni, Elena Cascella, Paolo Martella, Franco Minervini with musical accompaniment by Michele Capriati, poems of local authors, of great poets at international level, of the students of the “Literature and Poetry” project were declaimed “the Lute (Free University of the Third Age” Lia Damato Rutigliano), children of the city schools.

It was an event that reconciled adults and children with the musicality of words, with appealing and profound rhythmic expressions that led you to reflect on the true meaning of life, on the mysteries of the same, on the need to “sow” hopes and optimism, especially in the younger generations, who must “take over” the common values and perennial peace, justice and solidarity.

Complimentation and satisfaction expressed the Councilor for Culture Giuseppe R. Poli for the rich and moving evening, working on the basis of success and positivissimo recorded feedback, to promote other meetings in the name of poetry.
