From that time, and for many years, his stages were the squares, the factories occupied by the workers, the popular and political demonstrations; today, the theaters, the lecture halls, the universities: but always characterizing his poetry by a very original contact with the public.

With his particular sensitiveness for the peculiarity of the poetical sound, Stocchi published various records: Il dovere di cantare (National award of the critic), Punto e a capo, La cantata rossa per Tall el Zaatar (with the jazzman Gaetano Liguori), Da sogni e da cittą, also with Liguori.

He published with Einaudi the book of poetry and prose Compagno poeta.
In wartime has been published and distribiuted on the web in english, spanish and italian.
L'altezza del gioco will be published in 2003.

He is a member of the Club Psomega regrouping artists, philosophers and scientists to study the inventive thought. He has participated with his poems and essays in the Club Psomega's books, Il pensiero inventivo, Milano, Unicopli 1992 and La vita inventiva, Napoli, ESI 1998, of which he is the editor.
