World Poetry Academy

The World Poetry Academy was born on 23 June 2001 in Verona.

It is in fact in the city that saw the birth of the Latin poet Catullo, who welcomed Dante and allowed him to complete his “Divine Comedy”, which inspired Shakespeare and who welcomed Goethe, Dickens, Lord Byron and many other writers and artists from Europe and the world, who held the constituent meeting of the World Academy of Poetry, with the support of the City of Verona and the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

UNESCO, the Veneto Region, the Province of Verona, the University of Verona and other private sponsors have witnessed their interest and support.

SLOGAN
If a small virus is taking away the air … let’s recover the great breath of poetry!

IDEAMeetings with poets from all over the world … in a world that lives in quarantine. Humanity is undergoing forced isolation. Poetry can allow us to go outside (ourselves), to communicate deeply, while staying inside (home). True poetry gives us the opportunity to give oxygen and light to our consciences.

And then, as the poet Mario Luzi wrote: “Fly high, word, grow in depth”.

WE ARE WAITING FOR YOU!
