Rome honours Belli on 150th anniversary

Rome remembers its much-loved poet Giuseppe Gioachino Belli (1791-1863) on the 150th anniversary of his death, with a series of celebrations in various cultural venues throughout the capital. The tribute is organised by the Centro Studi Giuseppe Gioachino Belli to honour the 19th-century writer of 2,279 Romanesco sonnets. Among the highlights is an eight-part conference (Sept-Dec); the launch of a postage stamp in Belli's honour at the Istituto Poligrafico e Zecca dello Stato (19 Oct); two meetings at Teatro Argentina (27 Nov, 11 Dec); the unveiling of a commemmorative plaque at Palazzo Poli where Belli wrote his sonnets (2 Dec), and an exhibition at the Museo di Roma (3 Dec-3 Feb).
