Guglielmo, quel giorno

The book is a short nonsense tale that combines a selection of common homographs in my native language, composed as a present to my partner while he was learning Italian. Influenced by the constrained writing techniques of Oulipo and the experimental poetry of the avant-garde Italian literary movement Gruppo 63, this writing exercise plays with the tension between form, sound, and meaning of words, dealing with my personal interest in language structures.
