Since its founding in February 1905, Poesia published and reviewed literary texts in several European languages. Many of them were written in Italian, others in French, German, English and Spanish. The magazine also undertook several international inquiries, the most famous being the Inchiestainternazionale sul verso libero, which received responses from some of the major literary personalities of the time. From 1905 to 1909, Spanish poetry and prose had a more or less constant presence in Poesia, not least through the literary column, Toute la lyre, written by the poet Paolo Buzzi. In one of the last numbers of Poesia, half of Buzzi’s review section was dedicated to Spanish books, written and printed on both sides of the Atlantic (among the authors featured Gregorio Martinez Sierra, Miguel de Unamuno, Enrique Gomez Carrillo, and others). This essay aims to investigate some of the policies behind Marinetti’s presentation of Spanish writers, his views on the creative texts reviewed and to give an impression of the overall picture of Spanish culture transmitted by the periodical to its readers.
