The title of the exhibition, which refers to the aesthetic principle of Ut pictura poësis, highlights the relationship
of close interdependence between the arts, in this case between Ciro Palumbo's painting and the poetry of
Giovanni Pascoli, who came to Castelvecchio in 1895. In the Barga countryside, celebrated in the
Canti di Castelvecchio, Pascoli found a new nest, a refuge for poetry and the soul.
