Carla Bertola

Carla Bertola was born in 1935 in Torino where she still lives. She started writing poetry at a very young age, and, since the early 60’s, has contributed to poetry magazines, and taken part to meetings and other poetry events. She began producing Visual Poetry in the 80’s and her works have been accepted by specialized international magazines and exhibitions. She has also published books in France and USA, Canada, Ireland, Italy, England. In the same period she began her performances and a little later she produced “Stagepoetry actions“ most often with Alberto Vitacchio. She has performed in Italy, France, England, Ireland, Belgium, Holland, Germany, Canada, Mexico, Latvia, Serbia, Cuba, Brazil. She has had solo and collective exhibitions in many countries of Visual Poetry, Installations, and Artists Books.

Her research explores different themes, from the megalithic and other ancient cultures, through Futurism to social problems.

In 1978 she founded Offerta Speciale, an International Poetry Magazine, devoted to Visual and Research Poetry, that she still runs together with Alberto Vitacchio. The magazine has organized many Poetry Meetings, Visual Poetry Exhibitions and other events.
