Percy Bysshe Shelley, was a poet and philosopher, one of the greatest lyrical romantic. The unconventional life and the absolute idealism of Shelley made it a well-known figure and denigrated for his entire life. But it became the idol of the second and tird folowing generations of poets. After a wandering life, tragic and adventurous, he drowned in the sea in front of Lerici, Italy, at the age of about thirty years. The sea gave up his body on the beach in Viareggio, July 18, 1822, ten days after the sinking of his schooner.
The Club dei Cuori di Shelley organizes this year's Shelley Festival, which will involve the poet's places, and will stage, in addition to Bagni di Lucca and Viareggio, also in Rome and Milan to promote and make known the life and works of the A genius English poet whose destiny is tied to the whole of poetry lovers in Italy.
