... this gave rise to the idea that 'everything is language' and that 'it is the use of language' that makes poetry, music, painting, because language in itself is inert. it is thus necessary to operate, to formulate 'discourses' with the language one has chosen in order to give it a historical perspective (the idea of material poetry) (Ugo Carrega, Ricerche interlinguistiche.
