Ricardo Eufemio Molinari (March 23, 1898 – July 31, 1996) was an Argentine poet. Molinari was born in Buenos Aires, and was orphaned when he was five, after which he then lived with his grandmother, Bartola Delgado de Molinari. He left his studies early to become a poet. Molinari's first work was El Imaginero (1927). He contributed to the avant-garde review Martín Fierro, as did with other great Argentinian writers such as Jorge Luis Borges. In 1933 he traveled to Spain where he met the members of the Generation of '27. After he got married, he worked in the Congreso de la Nación until his retirement. He died in 1996. He was rewarded in 1958 with the Premio Nacional de Poesía for his work Unida Noche and became a member of the Academia Argentina de las Letras in 1968.
