Epiphanic Gifts from La Befana: Refurbished, Improved, Expanded Pina Piccolo’s Blog

I know it may come as  a shock to aficionados  of the old template (truth be told- probably not too many;-))),  but the blog that went online in 2015 was beginning to show its limitations. So with the guidance of  the multitalented webmaster and photographer Micaela Contoli, this Covid infested eve of the Epiphany 2021 has turned out to be the right night to switch to the new, expanded and improved Pina Piccolo’s Blog / Il Blog di Pina Piccolo. We actually consider it a gift from the Befana, the kindly, flying elderly woman who delivers gifts to Italian children on the Eve of the Epiphany. Then, of course, there is a more symbolic, literary meaning to the word “epiphany” so we’ll take it as a good omen.

You’ll find new sections devoted to ART, Photo Galleries, Friends’ writings, Video, as well as the customary ones with my poems, some in Italian, some in English, prose pieces, interviews and essays, organized with more explicit criteria. You can also find the Blog Archive containing all pieces from 2015 to 2020, situated on the side.

I hope this new blog will be more captivating and  easier to read and share. ENJOY!
