Born in Medrisio and now living in Bruzella in Switzerland's Italian-speaking region, Alberto Nessi (1940) was educated at the teachers training college of Locarno and at the University of Fribourg. He has worked for many years as a teacher. Nessi has published eight books of poems. The most recent, Ladro di minuzie. Poesie scelte (Trivia Thief. Selected Poems), is the bilingual volume published here for the first time in English translation. According to influential critic Pier Vincenzo Mengaldo, Nessi's poetry 'moves between a constantly engaged memory and the present as seen through the shutters of a window.'
