Londinium Poetry Walk

room 13 ECHOES

Enfield, Greater London, England, United Kingdom

Welcome to the Londinium Poetry Walk, an exciting event created by artist/poet Giovanna Iorio.

By following the route on the Echoes app, you will hear a selection of the 29 translations of the poem “Londinium” by Anthony Fisher, a project conceived to celebrate difference and the 300 languages spoken in London.

You can read the poems here: https://anthonyfisherpoet.com/londinium/londinium-in-translation/

The first is the English version read by Anthony Fisher and is just on the left as you enter Cecil Road.

The images are Voice Portraits, reproducing the voices of the poets reading each translation.

Giovanna Iorio's Sound WalksGiovanna Iorio's Sound Walks

I am a sound artist and I live in UK. I am the founder of the Poetry Sound Library, and archive that preserve the voices of poets from past and present. I research ways to link poetry to the landscape. My sound walks are in UK and around the world. "Voice of Trees" is a sound walk to discover the voices of the most important poets from the Poetry Sound Library archive: monumental trees receive a poet's voice and they become part of an inspiring sound installation.
