      • GENNARO TALLINI

        Plutarco e Nifo nella formazione umanistica di Giovanni Tarcagnota (1508-1566) - pp. 3-35

        In these pages we study the influences that Plutarch and Nifo had on the cultural and literary growth of Giovanni Tarcagnota (1508- 1566), particularly about the method of enquiry of ancient sources and the construction of a complete scholar and humanist. In the same time, we recognise as Nifo’s philosophic thinking should be a medium between contemporary sources and literary production of the scholar.

      • Angelo Alberto Piatti

        Fonti classiche e riverberi della trattatistica rinascimentale nel Padre di famiglia di Torquato Tasso - pp. 54-81

        In the light of a concise textual comparison with fourth and fifth century Renaissance literature, this in-depth essay examines the effects of philosophical and literary sources, both ancient and modern, in the dialogue of Tasso’s The Father of the Family, with particular reference to a variety of themes, such as the running of the household, managing the family estate, children’s education and the relationship between female and male virtue.

      • Valter Boggione

        Carta o tela dipinta, che tace *. Paragrafi gozzaniani - pp. 82-102

        The essay consists of two sections concerning the relation between Gozzano’s poetry and the figurative arts, analysed in the light of Schopenhauer’s philosophy. In the first, the prints and the other objects we find through the lines are connected not only with the crisis of art in the modern world but also with the will of keeping lived life aloof, turning the manifestations of the will (the search for pleasure, gold and laurel) into representation. In the second, the poem Il Responso is analysed in the light of the close connections with two texts by D’Annunzio (Maia e Il Fuoco) and two prose works by Gozzano himself (Il giorno livido e Un vergiliato sotto la neve), to recognize in the “antica stampa de ’l Durero”, which is there evoked, the Melancolia I. In the opposition between the print and the “grigia volpe danese” the contrast between fight and detachment, active and contemplative life is underlined, but at this point transferred from the existence dimension to the dimension of literature, with a further, ironic distance of the D’Annunzio craftsman model.

      • LAURA OLIVA

        Leonardismo e antileonardismo fin de siécle tra Italia ed Europa - pp. 119-149

        This work aims to reconstruct the myth of Leonardo and the specific influence he had during the 19th and 20th century, both as a character in a novel or a painting and as a source of inspiration for authors like D’Annunzio and the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood. Many authors, for better or for worse, called Leonardo their tutelary deity: from Ruskin to Ford Madox Brown, from William Hunt to Dante Gabriel Rossetti up to Walter Pater, whose celebration of Da Vinci’s genius emphasizes his versatility and the fascinating mixture of contrasts and ambiguities that made him a precursor - well before Raphael - of artists who followed him and a synthesis of those who preceded him.

      • Martino Marazzi

        Il sonno nella Gerusalemme liberata - pp. 36-53

        The article examines, from different angles, the presence of sleep in Tasso’s Jerusalem Delivered, and illustrates the multiplicity of its significance. In Tasso’s poem, despite the rather formulaic use of the word «sonno» within the ottava rimas, its existential weight affects deeply the development of all the major characters, and infuses the poem with a distinctive atmosphere of both heroism and melancholy, with a sense of – at the same time – uncertainty, attraction to death, and striving toward a wider and shared condition of peace.

      • GIOVANNI TESIO

        La parte della montagna nella letteratura italiana:un'indicazione di percorso. - pp. 103-118

        Italian literature seems to have welcomed the Mountain and its symbology as a narrative and poetic mode, especially from the Romantic period onwards. This foray focuses in particular on 20thcentury works and some of their key passages: from Rebora to Jahier, from Deledda to Romano, from Rigoni Stern to Zanzotto, from Pozzi to Bianca Dorato.

      • MARCO ROMANELLI

        Napoli a occhio nudo in una lettera inedita di Giustino Fortunato a Renato Fucini - pp. 150-154

        The unpublished letter by Giustino Fortunato which is presented here was sent to Renato Fucini in April 1878. The Tuscan writer had just published his pamphlet Napoli a occhio nudo and Fortunato writes him this letter to tell him his impressions of the book. Alongside his critical judgments, he makes some considerations on Naples and the problems of the South of Italy which make the letter particularly interesting, revealing some original aspects of Fortunato’s thinking.

      • Maria Rosaria Altieri

        Un testo, un’edizione, la letteratura. Lettere inedite di Clotilde Marghieri a Riccardo Ricciardi . - pp. 155-202

        Through the unpublished letters of Clotilde Marghieri to Riccardo Ricciardi, this essay aims to recostruct the receiving and the fortune of Vita in villa in 1960 and above all the events that led to the publication of Le educande di Poggio Gherardo in 1963. In the history of this last book, we are going to discover that is also involved Giorgio Bassani. At the same time, this correspondence offers a brief analysis of the history of this publishing house that marked the Italian literature in the Twentieth century.
