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.
