Aims and Objectives


  • to publish, in electronic form, short monographs (between 40,000-60,000 words) of excellent quality;
  • to open debates on 20th century Italian poetry approached and analysed through interdisciplinary methodologies;
  • to divulge scholarship of high quality both from less established as well as more mature international Italian Studies scholars;
  • to focus on close reading of texts and critical theory;
  • to create cross-disciplinary dialogue around 20th century Italian poetry and its possible influences on other areas of knowledge;
  • to trace the network of mutual influences that 20th century Italian poetry created with other European contemporary poetic traditions.


Submitted manuscripts will be read and commented on by at least two expert members of the Monograph Series Editing Board, and/or (if necessary) one external scholar expert in the field of research that the proposed monograph discusses.

Manuscripts on any aspect of Italian poetry (written in either English or Italian), which should be edited following the MHRA Style Sheet, can be submitted by following the Submit Link or sent directly to the section directors.

Authors wishing to discuss a proposal informally in the first instance, may contact the relevant section directors, Professor Gianni Turchetta ( and Dr Alberto Comparini (

In order for monographs to be published by early summer 2018, alongside the first Issue of the MOSAICI Journal , or earlier if possible, manuscripts on this theme should be submitted at the latest by December 2017.
