A rare collection of three poems presented to Carducci’s close friend Giambattista Gandino, a teacher at the University of Bologna, on the occasion of his marriage. Carducci contributes the long poem ‘Idillio. Coro di giovani – Coro di fanciulle’ which appears here for the first time, and was later incorporated into Levia Gravia in 1868 and appears in its definitive form in the Poesie of 1871. Emilio Teza contributes ‘La moglie del Capitano Prijezda’ and Francesco Bonatelli ‘Visioni interne’.
Not in OCLC; we have located only two copies, both in Bologna (Biblioteca di Casa Carducci and Biblioteca comunale dell’Archiginnasio).
