Poster To all the Women, Alda Merini

Born in Milan in 1931, Alda Giuseppina Angela Merini was one of the greatest and most important Italian poets and writers. She showed great literary talent already at the age of 15 and, despite private and social difficulties, managed to publish her poems and earn the fame with which we remember her today.

Alda Merini was a mad saint of poetry, a kind of "ogress who devoured herself" (Lamarque), book after book, word after word, which is the seat of poets. Alda Merini is for this reason the best-known Italian poet, but fame, although she sought it, never fully satisfied her.

I wanted to connect one of his famous poems, To all women, to the terrible and shameful situation that women, children, mothers and daughters are experiencing in IRAN.

The 4 crescents of the Iranian Flag are replaced by the astronomical symbol of the Planet Venus, and consequently, the symbol of the female universe. The poster is made with silk-screen inks, and the color strikes a texture of colored and burnt scotch paper (with the typical colors of the Iranian flag).

The fire of revolt, of revolution, of oppressed rights.

Poetry, To all women, the poster closes.

 To all women
 Fragile, opulent woman, matrix of paradise
 you are a grain of guilt
 even in the eyes of God
 despite your holy wars
 for emancipation.
 They shattered your beauty 
and a skeleton of love remains
 who however still cries out for revenge
 and only you can
 still crying,
 then you turn and see your children again,
 then you turn around and you still can't say
 and you are silent in amazement
 and then you become as big as the earth
 and raise your song of love.
Alda Merini
 Handmade  with love, mixed media sea blue screen printing ink, but very sea.

A word, a song, a color. A memory, a concert, the first time you saw each other, met. Words to love, words to say, or the words you can't say. The color of that night, of his eyes, of his skin.
