Sarenco

Sarenco (Isaia Mabellini, born 1945) is an Italian poet who was active as the leader of a radical group of visual poets based in Florence in the 1970s. Sarenco edited Lotta poetica (Poetic Struggle), a communist, anti-imperialist, anti-capitalist periodical devoted primarily to poetry with visual elements.

Processing Information

Collections are processed to a variety of levels, depending on the work necessary to make them usable, their perceived research value, the availability of staff, competing priorities, and whether or not further accruals are expected. The library attempts to provide a basic level of preservation and access for all collections [as they are acquired], and does more extensive processing of higher priority collections as time and resources permit.

This collection received a basic level of processing, including rehousing and minimal organization.

Information included in the Collection Contents section was repurposed from an inventory received with the collection, and preserves the item numbering and arrangement assigned prior to receipt.

This finding aid may be updated periodically to account for new acquisitions to the collection or revisions in arrangement and description.
