Ruins gathers a series of writings in the form of verses, fragments, and short essays that Gabriele Tinti has dedicated to the “living sculpture of the actor”.

The poet moves from the tragic sense of death and vacuity which afflicts even those masterpieces we wish eternal, with the aim of giving new life and thought to Graeco-Roman statuary, to all those relics of a now-lost humanity. Through its many courses and varied ideas, the book explores a distinctive relationship with the ancient world, and with the very reasons behind the making of art.
