Anna Maria Dall'Olio
Anna Maria Dall'Olio has been teaching English in Italian high schools since 1987. She devoted herself to fiction, poetry and playwriting.
She published two novels: “Avventura o morte” (2021) and “Segreti” (2018). and a collection of short stories, “In vettura!” (Amazon KDP, 2021) as well as 5 collections of poems:”Sì shabby chic” (2018), "L’acqua opprime" (2016), “Fruttorto sperimentale” (2016), "Latte & Limoni" (2014), "L’angoscia del pane" (2010). Finally, she wrote 2 plays, “Evoluzioni” (2019) and "Tabelo" (“Table”, 2006), both dealing with mobbing as a supreme artistic form.
Dall’Olio’s dramatic and poetic interests center around reality as well as society, even if she deals with her own life. As far as poetry is concerned, the poet’s literary tradition needs to be examined before writing: the topic points out the most convenient poetic style of each poem: yet, topics are up-to-date, and so final layouts are wholly unpredictable. As for fiction, Dall’Olio deals with reality as much as fantasy mixing different genres of prose and poetry as well as past present and future.
Hi, I am Giovanna Iorio. I am sound artist based in London and I am the curator of the House of voices, a doll's house for poets & artists memories. The main aspect of the exhibitions is that our guests are invited to share with us precious memories and they tell us their stories with their voices.
