Third authentic copy of manuscript by Giacomo Leopardi found

An original version of 'L'Infinito' to be displayed

(ANSA) - Recanati, June 16 - A third authentic manuscript of the poem 'L'Infinito' by Giacomo Leopardi, the famed Italian poet and philosopher born in the Marche town of Recanati, has been discovered and will be put on display this week.

The text, found in private archives, will be displayed Wednesday at the nearby University of Macerata, 20 kilometers from Recanati, during a conference dedicated to the poem and Leopardi's writings. Luca Pernici, director of cultural institutions for the city of Cingoli, also in the region of Macerata, discovered the manuscript in a private collection of papers. It was later authenticated by Marcello Andria of the National Library of Naples and a specialist in Leopardi's works.
