In poetry, worlds are made of words. But then, what the worlds are - words or reality? The word "water" is not drinkable, the word "bread" is not edible. The things are not what we call them. And isn't that one of the poet's missions: coming back to authenticity, an equivalence between the subject and its name, the word and the gesture?  To give the world back to a word, one would have to re-create it anew.  That would essentially unite "making worlds" and  "making words". During our poetry readings we offer everyone water to drink and bread to eat in order to have the words " water" and "bread" regain their actual filling. Poetry operates with words, revealing the hidden resources of language and going beyond the normative conceptualization of reality. Five basic elements, five breads shared among five thousand people - these archetypes are behind the five days that the Poetry Project will be run in Giardini.

Visual artist Youla Hatzigeorgiou, in collaboration with architect Giannis Epaminondas, have designed a wooden crate that unfolds and serves as a platform on which poets and other artists present their works and actions. The result is a specifically designed stage to host our world-making event.

Each of five days from 3 till 7 June Moscow Poetry Club presents poetic performances, curated by Daniel Birnbaum and Eugeny Bunimovich, which involve Russian, Italian, Greek, Cypriot, American and Austrian poets. The offering of bread and water during all the performances is related to the “Common Cause” installation by Igor Makarevich and Elena Elagina in Arsenale, which operates with bread semantics. While poets are reading their works, artists Alexander Djikia and Anja Zhelud are making real-time graphics illustrating the readers' verses on huge sheets spread on the walls and the floor. The poets from the "Russian Gulliver" project curated by Vadim Mesyats is presenting performances "Gydromachia" (an attempt to charm away floods and rain) and "Resurrection of a Hymn", based on a reconstruction of Indo-European protohymn. Alexander Ponomarev is showing performance by Vsevolod Nekrasov. La Casa delle Parole (Venice) is representing the modern Italian poetry.
