Polish poet, essayist and literary critic Wisława Szymborska, the 1996 winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature, met with almost 1,500 readers at the University of Bologna in Italy March 29. Szymborska read out her poems in Polish, and the audience then heard Italian translations of her work. The translations come from a large edition of Szymborska's poetry translated and edited by Pietro Marchesani, a specialist in Polish studies who during the meeting received the Polish Gloria Artis medal awarded by the Polish minister of culture and national heritage.

Writer Umberto Eco told the audience that he was working on an anthology of literature entitled From Homer to Szymborska. He also read out an Italian translation of one of Szymborska's poems.

The audience also saw excerpts of an interview with filmmaker Woody Allen, who is an admirer of Szymborska's work.
