The second anthology, entitled La pungente grazia, edited by Daniela Marcheschi, includes works by Anna Cascella Luciani, Cristina Annino, Maura Del Serra, Margherita Rimi and Chiara Carminati.

Claudio Pozzani and Daniela Marcheschi, the translators Ida Andersen, John Swedenmark and Julian Birbrajer, and the poets Maura Del Serra, Margherita Rimi and Chiara Carminati will participate in the event.
