The Poems of Award-Winning Poet and Novelist Piero Rivolta have been combined for the first time into one boxed set, including the following books: Nothing Is Without Future, Going By Sea: Poems and Thoughts of Today?s World, One Life, Many Lives and Just One Scent, The Rest is God.

In the tradition of metaphysical poets, Piero gathers concrete yet evocative impressions – images based on the sea and sailing, mountains and meadows, music and scents – to ask questions about the purpose of life and what it means to be human.
Prose poems alternate with lyrical verse to cover a range of subjects, including work, spirituality, romantic relationships and love, from a variety of perspectives.

Piero looks to the past while offering keen observations and insight into our current state of affairs. Wistful musings, triggered by a visit to his childhood home in Italy, about watershed occurrences like September 11 and observations of his natural surroundings, alternate with lyric poems that celebrate love, art, music and other momentary pleasures.

PRAISE FOR THE POETRY OF PIERO RIVOLTA:

“Piero Rivolta’s poetry is a mix of delicate sounds plucking the strings of memory. It celebrates both melancholy and passion. He is what might be called a universal romantic…but it is his talent to evoke the power of memory that gives his poetry a flavor beyond the mere stirring of words…” — Martin Tucker, Author of “While There is Time: Penultimate Poems”

?The lyrics caress the sublime and reach the height of the ethereal. They lift your thoughts and give them a certain freedom. Nietzsche wrote about altitudes in the soul from which a view out causes even tragedy to not have a tragic effect. This book is an illuminating example of that.? — Nicola Vacca, ?Secolo d?Italia?

ABOUT PIERO RIVOLTA

Piero Rivolta is an award-winning poet and novelist devoted to exploring the depth and breadth of life. Possessed of an insatiable curiosity, a love of beauty, and a talent for creating, Piero has applied his sensibilities to not only being the author of eight books, but also to being a designer, developer, manufacturer, homebuilder and philanthropist.

Over the course of his extraordinary life, Piero has had many lives. He was born in Desio (Milan) Italy, and at the tender age of 24, just after earning his Doctorate in Mechanical Engineering from the Politecnico di Milano, Piero assumed leadership of the family automobile manufacturing company founded by his father, Renzo, who passed away one year later in 1966.

The company was called Iso and until the early 1960s primarily produced motorcycles, small trucks and the famous egg-shaped, front-door Isetta bubble car. Later, the company expanded into the production of luxury sports cars under the name Iso Rivolta, to differentiate from the Iso company?s other existing product lines at that time, which now included snowmobiles and other snow vehicles. The mighty griffon was selected as the Iso Rivolta emblem and lent its name to the company?s most popular model, the Grifo, which raced at LeMans. Later, the company entered the world of Formula One racing under the name Iso-Rivolta-Marlboro.

In 1980 the family moved to Sarasota, Florida, which became their new home and the center of Piero?s future business projects, focusing on building well-thought-out residential communities with tennis courts and golf courses, luxury condominiums, shopping centers and office buildings. Due to his love for nature and harmonious design (inherited from his father), he also donated two community parks, one in Italy, and another in the U.S.

Piero has also enjoyed writing since childhood; in recent years, while still involved in numerous projects, he has spent much of his personal time creating engaging fiction and poetry. His collection of eight books has won both local and international attention and awards. He is currently working on new
