A precursor of the 3ViTre sound poetry compilations (see previous post), Baobab, subtitled Informazioni fonetiche di poesia, was a sound poetry cassette magazine founded by Adriano Spatola (1941–1988) in 1979 in Reggio Emilia, in the Emilia-Romagna region in North Italy. Spatola had been publishing poetry magazines and chapbooks since the early 1960s in Bologna and Milan. In 1968, with brothers Maurizio and Tiziano, he founded Geiger, a publishing house dedicated to avantgarde writing (see here). After the death of Spatola, 3ViTre publisher Enzo Minarelli took over the magazine and published new issues well into the mid-1990s.
