Every city deserves poems that speak of it, of its rooms, of its buildings, of its streets, of the urban experience that goes from desire to reality and then to dreams. This record is inscribed when its citizens travel through it and inscribe their own personal journey with their words. (Carlos Villacorta)

From military reformism to the counter-reform, from crisis and terror to neoliberal pacification, Lima Escrita proposes an inquiry that goes back and forth from the unfinished urban project to the achievements of poetic thought in the last half century. Villacorta's map not only locates landscapes, characters, climates and encounters encrypted in literary texts, but also suggests that, in its appearance, in its very writing, the scale and density that the Peruvian capital acquired in that period beats, as a territory material and political, as a space for permanent negotiation and reconstruction of the public word.
