Poet and Renaissance man Piero Rivolta at The Reserve

Join us for this Purely Piero Event...(the first in a series)...


Appearances By: Margot Zarzycka, Sarasota Orchestra and Richard Storm,

Award-winning Author and Poet Piero Rivolta grew up in Milan in a family of automakers. He left Italy and moved to Sarasota, Florida in 1980 with his wife Rachele, a painter. They have two grown children, Renzo and Marella. Bridge Through The Stars is his first novel since the publication of Journey Beyond 2012 and his Sarasota Trilogy: Sunset in Sarasota, Alex and the Color of the Wind and The Castaway. Piero is also the author of four poetry/prose collections: Just One Scent: The Rest is God, Nothing Is Without Future, Going By Sea and One Life Many Lives.

From his manifesto on living the poetic life: “We live at a time when people over-rationalize, over-complicate and overthink just about everything. Turn on the TV and you’ll see politicians and the media generate enough heated intellectual discussion to make your head spin. It sounds important, but it’s not getting us anywhere. In fact, it overwhelms and destroys most efforts to improve our lives. We seem to have forgotten what truly matters, what lies at the core of our human experience, what goes to the heart of things.”

Hors d'oeuvres will be provided. Wine, beer, coffee and tea will be available for purchase. Books will be available for purchase as well.
