        Da Knoller a G.B. Bolza, da Faldella a Zweig - pp. 436-446

        In the Eighteenth Century many Italians were active in Vienna, but Austrians of distinction were also present in Milan. The Viennese architect Leopold Pollack, whose designs included the city’s ‘Villa Reale’, and the painter Martin Knoller, from the Tyrol, who produced the only extant portrait of Giuseppe Parini, both come to mind. The situation changed as from the end of the century. With the spread of nationalist ideology in Europe in the Nineteenth Century, the ruling and intellectual classes of Lombardy and the Veneto split into separatist and philo-Austrian groupings. Particularly prominent amongst the latter was the Lombard count Giovan Battista Bolza (1801-1869), imperial and royal civil servant, man of letters, educationist, linguist and folklore scholar. His Rivista viennese (Viennese Review), which was printed in Vienna, was especially important, being mainly intended as a vehicle for the diffusion of German literature in Italy. Amongst other things, the first italian translation of Adelbert von Chamisso’s Schlemihl – one of the masterpieces of German Romanticism – appeared in its pages. In the second half of the Nineteenth Century and the first years of the Twentieth, the dominant hostility towards Austria was evident in the work of writers such as Giovanni Faldella and D’Annunzio.

      • Alfred Noe

        Franz Grillparzer e l’Italia - pp. 447-467

        Franz Grillparzer begins his journey through Italy in 1819 wishing to realize his literary dreams. His beliefs were deeply marked by the German tradition of the Seventeenth and Eighteenth centuries that saw Italy as the mother of European culture and the garden of Nature. His conflicting thoughts appeared in some of his poems and attracted severe criticism from the authorities. Such ideas deeply contributed to the birth of the typical sarcasm of a late classicist making him a prophet of the decadent movement.

      • Francesca Tornese

        Una malattia pronosticata da lontano. Declino e fine di mastro-don Gesualdo - pp. 468-497

        This study examines the disease that affects mastro-don Gesualdo, identifying the precondition of the pathological state in the persistent and unresolved psycho-emotional conflict of the character. The resulting somatization process is reconstructed in the light of a predetermined authorial design which disseminates the illness – almost camouflaging within the narrative its gradual and diachronic evolution until its inauspicious result – as a necessary reason to unfold the fate of the protagonist.

      • Mariagrazia Tauro

        La poesia in scena. Il teatro simbolista di Corrado Govoni - pp. 498-519

        Corrado Govoni’s theatre, still neglected by the critics, results instead of particular interest for its characteristic of “theatre of poetry”, that has its roots in French Symbolism and in D’Annunzio’s literary works. The essay analyses how in his plays Govoni diffusely repeats themes and images of his copious poetic works, but in dark tones, which show an original recovery of Maeterlinck’s suggestions.

      • Luigi Abiusi

        Giovanni Boine: dalla teoria all’estetica intransitiva - pp. 520-532

        This assay follows the evolution of Boine’s literary experience, starting from his first engagement as a modernist on the review «Il Rinnovamento» as far as the poetic writings of the last years. During the decade 1907-1917, the author changes from his adhesion to Christianity (even if in a controversial sense) to the dedication to philosophy, to theorization about literary criticism as well as aesthetics, as far as linguistic experimentation of novel Il peccato and the poetic proseworks of Frantumi.

      • Paola Ponti

        «Immemoriale è la storia dei monti e del mare». Tempo, spazio e memoria nel Diario di Grecia di Lalla Romano - pp. 533-548

        The journey described in Diario di Grecia originates from a real experience. The narration is divided in chapters, following the days, the places and the hours of each stop. While explicit space-time data structure the frame of the diary, the narrator tends to free himself from the circumstances of each visit. The description of natural spaces, of mythological sites or works of art is selective, often targeted at details which activate his autobiographic and literary memory. This results in a perception of time parallel to the progressive one stated in the diary, where beginning and end do not follow each other, but refer mutually. The narrator’s contemplation of space becomes thus the occasion to withdraw temporarily from linear time and to perceive the possibility of a mutual implication between extremes such as childhood and old age or youth and maturity.
