Alberto Vitacchio


Alberto Vitacchio was born in 1942 in Torino where he still lives. He has always written poetry and published in many magazines in Italy and abroad. During the 80’s he began working on Visual Poetry and, at the same time, started doing performances usually with Carla Bertola, working on the idea of “Stagepoetry actions”. He performed widely in Italy and different countries: France, Belgium, Holland, Germany, Ireland, Serbia, Brasil, Mexico, Cuba, Latvia, Canada.

During the 80’s he also started to work on Sound Poetry and Visual Poetry. He personally produces and mixes his works and has also done sound installations. In Visual Poetry he usually works on collages following a personal technique obtaining color from the surface of paper, a procedure he calls “pulling up”; recently he is using blowing up from fragments passing through photos and then laser copies. He also works on Artist’s Books. He has taken part in many exhibitions in Italy and abroad. Since 1978 he is co-editor of the International Poetry Magazine Offerta Speciale which is devoted to visual and research poetry.
