Sempresù (Carolus Luigi Cergoly)

Italy (1908—1987)
Cergoly began his career as poet and literate in early 1920s. He founded a circle of artists called Circolo del Magalà, consisting of live performances at the Italian Navy circle. Few years later he published his first poem collection Maaagaalà of clear Futurist inspiration and started using his pseudonym Sempresù. He continued to write in Italian and in dialect, mainly poetry but also plays for theatre and cinema and essays on specialised magazines. After the war he focuses on journalism and became director of the paper Il Nostro Avvenire and founded Il Corriere di Trieste.
