POETRY IN SIENA, September 2012

For a change the stARTers series organized by the Siena Art Institute won't host a visual artist but a poet. Visiting artist in Siena this September, Jo Shapcott is still fresh from her experience at the Poetry Parnassus, an event organised alongside the Olympic Games in London. 
Shapcott is the former president of the Poetry Society and has won various awards (in 2011 the Queen's Gold Medal for Poetry, which must be similar to Olympic gold). 

Siena Art Institute, Tuesday 4th September 6pm stARTers - artist talks
Via Tommaso Pendola, 37 - Tel 0577 532001 
Presentation in English. The meetings are for free. 

On Thursday 6th September more poetry is on its way. This time in Italian. Enjoy a warm summer's night out at the Orto de' Pecci to listen to sonnets and verses composed by Italian poets: ARTE NELL'ORTO
