SCHINEPISCI o L’arte dell’improvvisazione
Improvisation is the basis of the complex and amusing poetic challenge known as Campidanese Cantada in which poets in competition sing improvised verses in turn. The originality of this poetical form and its history is told by the ethnomusicologist Marco Lutzu through the comparison with poetry traditions of different areas of the world, too.
The skill of the extemporaneous poets is given by the rules of the Cantada and by the main metric forms: su versu and su mutetu longu. In the end, the students try to compose some mutetus, supported by the new technologies.
