Summary/Abstract: The artistic creativity of Bolesław Leśmian – remarkably colourful, musical, and what is more, referring to varied philosophical concepts – has endeared readers all around the world over the course of a century. In spite of many unfavourable socio-political factors, his poetry managed to become a reference point, as it happened in Italy in the 1970s. Therein, the first encounter with the works of the Polish artist became a crucial moment for a young poet – Milo De Angelis. After a stay in Warsaw, he began to publish a literary magazine entitled “Niebo”, number 11 of which was entirely dedicated to Leśmian, whose visions profoundly influenced the poetics of the Italian author, even in the outer years.
