Book Launching 2022 

Istituto di Traduzione

by Giuseppe Caccavale

published by Dante&Descartes

November 10, 2022


at ASSAB ONE in Milan

Via Privata Assab 1, Milan

With writings by Chiara Bertola, Marco Caratozzolo, Erri De Luca, Claudia Gian Ferrari and Pier Luigi Tazzi and with a new translation by Marco Caratozzolo of Osip Mandel’Štam’s “The Morning of Acmeism”.

The book, conceived by the artist with the designer Odilon Coutarel, is based on one of the artist’s emblematic goblets. It’s silhouette first appears on the cover, then the construction is detailed on the first pages.  The location of this gobelet determines the layout of the whole book and its silhouette reappears on the back cover. The stitched binding of the inner block is visible under the 160g pergamanta cover. When the book is pressed, the Cyrillic characters of the gobelet can be read through the paper. The book , offset printed by Alfa Grafica, includes facsimiles of the translator’s worksheets and a selection of Osip’s poems translated in Italian/Russian.
