In memoria

IN MEMORY

Lives,
engraved on the walls of the houses
in whitewashed slabs
of marble veined
by rust and memories.
Names and dates
whose memory has been lost,
warning to pride and arrogance
of those who today boast
of themselves.

Vite,
incise sulle pareti delle case
in lastre imbiancate
di marmo venato
di ruggine e ricordi.
Nomi e date
di cui si è perduta memoria,
monito all’orgoglio e all’arroganza
di chi oggi fa di sé
vanto.
