Pietro Mura

The author focused on perfecting his verses with an accurate labor limae looks like a relevant and predictable likeness when speaking about Pietro Mura, a dialectal poet and master coppersmith native of Isili. Yet it would match – just partially – this self-taught academic and lyricistfigure: yes, he held a true natural talent as an "alchemist" – concerning metal as well as words – but, above all,he wanted to apply to art all the public benefits coming from his main career. Thatis the reason why he moved, from town to town and from square to square, for years, at first to market his products and later to sing his literary works, being one of the most original voice during the new age of Sardinian poetry. His son Antonio too, born in 1926, will follow the footprints of his poet-father, respected and honoured on several occasions during the participation at Premio Città di Ozieri in old age; while Gonario Pinna, three years after his death, will rightfully incorporate him inside theAntologiadeipoetidialettalinuoresi (1969), together with Sebastiano Satta and Pasquale Dessanay, recognizing him a knowledge equal to that of the most skilful word artisans, equipped with a chisel and a burin inside their "studio".
