The titles of Giorgio Manganelli’s books clearly display a search for unusual linguistic combinations. The reader is often required to make an effort of interpretation. In this paper, the titles are examined, their lexical components analyzed and an interpretation offered in the light of the author’s poetics. The
tendency to play with linguistic elements is interpreted not only in itself, but as an instrument of knowledge.
