This article contains the notes made by the Italian poetess Antonia Pozzi (1912-1938) while attending the university courses held by Antonio Banfi (1886-1957) during 1931-1932 and 1932-1933. They are useful for an understanding not only of her academic studies but also of Banfi’s thinking on aesthetics in the 1930s. In two appendices, the Author describes the content of the Italian philosopher’s courses on aesthetics between 1931-1932 and 1934-1935 (and in addition a course held by Giuseppe Antonio Borgese in 1930-1931) and Antonia Pozzi’s university career. Unpublished until now, these notes by a student are the only existing record of those courses since Banfi’s lecture notes never appeared in print.
