L''urgenza letteraria' del rap italiano: aspetti intrinseci ed estrinseci

Mariaelena Tucci


Since the early 1980s, Italian rap has been characterized by its literary aspect partly inherited from twentieth century conversational poetry, partly (and 'unconsciously') due to its proximity with the style and the themes of the new narrative of the Giovani Cannibali Writers (Aldo Nove, Enrico Brizzi, Silvia Ballestra, etc.). This paper tries to identify the intrinsic and extrinsic literary aspects of Italian rap throughout its evolution. At the same time it concentrates on more recent examples in which special attention is given to the songs' textual dimensions, their 'sublimation' of the content and the multilayered meaning of their words.
