Eugenio De Signoribus

Eugenio De Signoribus

Eugenio De Signoribus (1947) is an Italian poet. He was born and lives in Cupra Marittima in the province of Ascoli Piceno, Italy.[1] He was winner in 2002 of the Castelfiorentino Literature Prize and in 2008 of the Viareggio Prize.

Swedish Academician Kjell Espmark has described him as "a more severe and rigorous voice than those to which we are accustomed. His powerfully visionary poetry frees itself from every casual or superfluous element to give emphasis to the primary conditions of existence."[2]

He is a co-editor of Istmi literary journal.[3]
