Aldo Quagliotti brings readers his new poetry collection. Incubi & Succubi is an exciting and sensual collection of pieces that explore the idea of demons that can explore your life, ruin it, or elevate it. He brings to this collection the same spirit and approach that has characterized his work in the past in collaborations with Voices from the Fire and other projects that have allowed the author to become someone special within the world of poetry.
Incubi & Succubi is full of energy that can rejuvenate those who need it, riding the demons of one’s mind. But at the same time, this poetry collection is challenging and can create a situation where you let the demons within feed on you, so beware of going too deep or being too trusting.
The poetry explores our divine nature and demonic nature as well, and the work speaks of issues that are sure to resonate with readers who want to explore something exciting and new, something that challenges them and brings them out of their comfort zone in the artistic sense. It is an artistic endeavor that can help you keep evolving and moving on.
He is a poet who truly allows his art to go beyond and above what you might expect and pushes the boundaries of the written word to create something truly unique.

We had the pleasure of interviewing Aldo Quagliotti. Here are the excerpts from the interview.
Hi Aldo, Great to have you with us today! Please share with our readers about yourself.
Hi, I’m an Italian poet living in London, UK. I’ve previously written “Japanese Tosa” (London Poetry Books) and “Confessions Of A Pregnant Man” (AllienBuddha Press), two collections of poetry that anticipated my new book “Incubi&Succubi.” My poems have traveled the world and been published in Italy, Brazil, USA, Canada, Ireland, and the United Kingdom in webzines, magazines, and anthologies, as well as podcasts and installations.
Please tell us about your new book, Incubi&Succubi.
My new collection is deeply inspired by the dreamy world of our subconscious and its extreme vitality and belated meanings. Every time we sleep, we cross a deeper discourse of connections and reverberations that can guide us when awake. The two worlds become interchangeable as the demons we feed inside flirt with us.
Please share with our readers about your journey.
I have started writing poetry since I discovered books, which was pretty soon! I’ve since then written uninterruptedly and have since then been selected for important anthologies such as Paper therapy, Yawp!, The Essential anthology, Murmurations, Poetical Word, Poetry in the Time of Coronavirus. I have moved to London and established my life here in the last five years. I currently speak English, Italian, Spanish and Portuguese.
What are the strategies that helped you become successful in your journey?
I have never really worried about success. As an emerging author, I’m trying to find my voice in an ocean full of rage and, at times, hostility. The greatest feedback is always people snapping their fingers at open mic nights!
Any message for our readers.
I really hope that you’ll get intrigued by my book. If you have never read anything mixing eroticism and clumsiness, I might be an interesting door to trespass. If you are a fan of joining the dots whilst yawning over your morning coffee, then what are you waiting for? How can we shape our minds to escape the savagery of these dark times? How can we train our imagination to create alternatives? How can we discipline our spirit to enjoy these moments of pleasure? I had no clue and was seeking answers; I grabbed my diary and wrote what was going on in my life during the pandemic. My third collection blossomed, and I hope it can be yours too, now. I’ll be ecstatic to hear your thoughts.
Fantastic! So tell us, how can people find out more about you?
I am forever behind with marketing strategies and connecting via digital media, but I’m working hard on it! You can find me on Instagram @capitanoaldo or on Facebook (Aldo Quagliotti). I also run a blog called ‘Quaquaversal – poetic reviews in harsh times.’
Thank you so much, Aldo, for giving us your precious time! We wish you all the best for your journey ahead!
