Camillo Sbarbaro (1888-1967)

Camillo Sbarbaro was an Italian (from Liguria) poet, wrier and translator. He was close to Eugenio Montale. Sbarbaro was an exponent of Crepuscolarismo (twilight school) and experimented with a form of prose poetry that he called trucioli (shavings). Some of his first poems were written in the trenches during World War I.
