Abstract | Full Text

This «tribute» to the recently deceased poet (one of the leading Italian intellectuals of the 20th century) is inspired by the publication of a piece from 1949, <em>Frammenti da «Invenzione di Don Chisciotte»</em> (<em>Fragments from «The Invention of Don Quixote»</em>), in <em>Varie ed eventuali</em> —his last poetry collection, where the Cervantes character is presented as a «sensitive traveller». The paper revisits Sanguineti’s «travel poems», which were inspired by Spanish and Catalan places. Starting from the poetry of the «piccolo fatto vero» (small true event), this paper develops the dimension/topic of «bilocazione» —as he calls it in <em>Cose 63</em>— which is revealed, in terms of duality and absence, as one of the key topics highlighted by his poetic experience of travels.
