Luigi Orsini

He obtained a degree in law but he had a deep knowledge of classic culture, and he soon began his poetic career. He was greatly inspired by the works of Carducci and Pascoli, from which he acquired an evocative and elegiac tone and the predilection for themes of nature and man’s work, the emphasis on the moral and human values.


Among his numerous works are “Cicalata Romagnola” (1891), highly acclaimed by Carducci, and his later collections “Le Campane di Ortodonico” and “I Salmi della Montagna”.
