Lost in the colors contains 60 previously unpublished love poems. Many of them were written during the pandemic lockdown. During that time, we felt trapped within the walls of our home, which, for some reason, felt, not like a refuge, but like a space that was too small to breathe and relax. These poems were written when Italy – and, more precisely, Bergamo, where I live – was the epicenter of the epidemic. We really did feel lost among the colors, which changed frequently depending on the situation, confusing us still further. A phone call or a simple conversation seemed to bring us the world. I hope that the poetic collection Lost in the colors brings a smile to your face and reminds you of the chaos of feelings and emotions that only love and its nuances can evoke.Cover photograph by BIAGIO FORTINI.
