Earthly and Heavenly Journey of Simone Martini

Recognized as one of the great living poets of Italy, and several times a candidate for the Nobel Prize, Luzi wrote this work in 1994, when he was eighty. In it the poet imagines the last voyage of the great painter from Avignon to his native Siena, in the company of his family, servants, and a theology student. Their pilgrimage is a journey of discovery and purification that leads to a new, vibrant perception of reality.
