Carlo Adorni, “Omaggio a Giosuè Borsi”
Giosuè Borsi (1888–1915) was born in Livorno, in the house in Via degli Inglesi. It owed his name to Carducci, a friend of his father. He studied at the Niccolini Guerrazzi high school and graduated in Pisa.
He began to poetise early, with verses, needless to say, of Carduccian inspiration. In a period of experimentation and avant-garde like that, his position was established on traditional, classical, imitative forms.
