Author: Mariangela Gualtieri

Mariangela Gualtieri is regarded as one of Italy's most compelling and innovative voices. She was born in Cesena, Italy, in 1951, and trained as an architect. In 1983, she founded, together with Cesare Ronconi, the famed Teatro Valdoca, for which she serves as dramaturge. Long committed to cultivating the oral dimension of poetry and its communal, collective roots, she routinely bridges the realms of poetry and theater via her Valdoca projects, as best evidenced by the collection Fuoco centrale e altre poesie per il teatro (Einaudi, 2003) and the theatrical text in verse, Caino (Einaudi, 2011). Her books include: Antenata (Crocetti, 1992); Senza polvere senza peso (Einaudi, 2006); Paesaggio con fratello rotto (Luca Sossella Editore, 2007); Bestia di gioia (Einaudi,2010); Sermone ai cuccioli della mia specie (book and CD, Teatro Valdoca, 2012); and Le giovani parole (Einaudi, 2015). She has also collaborated on two art books: Donna che non impara (Emilio Mazzoli Gallery 2003) and photographer Guido Guidi's A Seneghe (Perda Sonadora Imprentas, 2012). BEAST OF JOY marks the first full-length publication of her work in English.
