Fabiano Alborghetti

Registro dei fragili. 43 canti

« era quello il suo lavoro era quello il suo mestiere 
esser corpo da vedere, esser forma da tivù »

A news story is the starting point for this extraordinary collection of poems. A mother kills her own child. The photo in the paper shows a blonde woman with a provocative appearance in the grip of an obsession with youth and success. The poet becomes a chronicler in search of reality with all of its various levels and hidden compartments. In the previous book («L'opposta Riva», 2006) the author visited the underground world of immigrants. In «Registro dei fragili», he pursues the realities of supermarkets, gyms and the colourful illusions of a society corrupted by television. To give poetic expression to this disconcerting realm of the vulgar, Fabiano Alborghetti (*1970) adopts a subtly sophisticated metre. Stanzas of octosyllable verse snake the page circling rhythmic themes that hint at nursery rhymes, reaching lofty stylistic heights or fading out in terrestrial realms. Alborghetti punctuates his verse with internal rhymes and clinking alliterations, and infuses it with worn-out statements from the world of fashion and celebrity: «That was his job and his calling / to be a body, for exhibition, TV material.»
