The poem “La via ferrata” as a trace of the analysis of the literary text at maturity is “a happy choice, because it highlights Giovanni Pascoli as a poet of modernity, capable of reflecting on the relationship between nature and technological development, thus placing him as the author of extraordinary topicality “. Daniela Baroncini, full professor of contemporary Italian literature at the University of Bologna and president of the Pascoliana Academy of San Mauro Pascoli, told Adnkronos. “I was really pleased that at maturity he returned to proposing Pascoli – added Baroncini – and above all he is proposed as a current poet, with a message yet to be discovered. That proposal is a particular poem, where there is none. only nature but also technological progress and in those verses Pascoli also suggests a change in space-time perception. Pascoli is not the best known, that of objects, of the dead, of bucolic landscapes. He is the poet who questions himself about modernity, where the perception of a disturbing beyond emerges. In this poem emerges the disturbing aspect of the artificial in relation to nature, which in the end seem to unite in the image of the ‘sound harp’ “.
