  • The Afterlives of Buffalmacco: The Decameron’s Impact on Giorgio
           Vasari’s Two Editions of the Vite
    • Abstract: Giovanni Boccaccio, after Dante and Petrarch, is evidently an authority on both art and writing about art during the Italian Renaissance. His Genealogia deorum gentilium served humanists as a vademecum on how to depict the pagan Gods, and became accessible to artists after Giuseppe Betussi’s volgarizzamento of 1564. The intelligent and sensitive interest that Boccaccio took in contemporaneous art and artists, most of all in Giotto, has been widely emphasized by scholars and by Creighton Gilbert in particular.1 Across the academic community, it is generally accepted that the encomium of Giotto in the Decameron contributed both to advocating painting as an imitation of nature and to the cult of Giotto taking root.

  • La Mirtilla: Shaping a New Role for Women
    • Abstract: In a time when women who were performing in the commedia dell’arte were demonized and accused of immorality, the life and example of actress and playwright Isabella Andreini showed that it was possible for an actress to be a pious and virtuous woman, a firm believer in the sanctity of the marital bond, and the mother of seven children raised according to the Christian values of her time. Andreini was not only extremely talented in the performing arts, but clever, learned, eloquent and literarily accomplished.1 The combination of these talents and achievements made her a compelling advocate in the defense of the female character, as she chose to use the medium of pastoral drama—which her male contemporaries used to ...

  • Excessive Poetry: The Use of Superchio in Michelangelo’s Verses
    • Abstract: The term superchio, more or less translatable as “excessive,” appears in Michelangelo’s poetry a total of thirteen times, mainly as an adjective, but also as a noun (three times), and once as an adverb. Here is a list of its occurrences.1“quand’el superchio ardor troppo l’accende” (45); “when the excessive heat lightens up [the heart] too much.”“l’infinita beltà, ’l superchio lume” (113); “infinite beauty, excessive light.”“d’un superchio piacer morte n’aspetta” (148); “death comes right after an excessive pleasure.”“con tal superchia aita” (149); “with such an excessive help.”con superchia pietà mi rasserena (150); “it reassures me with her excessive mercy.”“c’al don superchio debil virtù muore” (150); “under the ...

  • Wordsworth’s and Southey’s Translations of Michelangelo,
           1805–6
    • Abstract: On Christmas Day, 1804, William Wordsworth wrote to Sir George Beaumont detailing his current and projected work on two poems: one, nearly complete in thirteen-book form, “on my earlier life or the growth of my own mind” (known to us as The Prelude); the other, never finished, and “to be called … ‘The Recluse’ … concerning Man, Nature, and society.”1 The letter is the earliest mention of Wordsworth’s plans to translate some of Michelangelo’s poetry for Richard Duppa, a project he undertook jointly with Robert Southey: “Duppa is publishing a life of Michael Angelo and I received from him a few days ago two proof sheets of an Appendix which contains the poems of M. A – which I shall read, and translate one or two of ... Read More

  • Shame in Ethical Discourse: Vichian Echoes in Bernard Williams
    • Abstract: The affinities between the thought of Bernard Williams (1929–2003) and Giambattista Vico (1668–1744) have been well noted by scholars of Vico, who have stressed the similarities in their treatment of sensus communis and the emotions.1 Although Williams rarely cites Vico, the fact that such strong correspondences exist is most likely the result of Williams’ intellectual debt to Isaiah Berlin, who led the revival of interest in Vico’s thought in the second half of the twentieth century.2 This article argues, however, that the points of contact between Vico and Williams run deeper than mere passing resemblances and structure their respective responses to the rationalist assumptions of their contemporaries. Both ... Read More

  • The Rise of Italian Literary Historiography in Nineteenth-Century England
    • Abstract: The history of literary historiography is a field of research that requires further investigation. Its foundations were laid in England and Italy by René Wellek and Giovanni Getto in 1941 and 1942, respectively. Despite not being particularly vibrant, this field of study is still pursued by scholars.1 However, not enough attention has been devoted to the histories of foreign literatures. Studying these works is important because they can better clarify the reception dynamics of single authors and genres abroad, they exemplify the general diffusion of theoretical and methodological tools, and they represent an intermediate step between the still-predominant approaches in literary historiography (which are generally ...

  • Like an Alchemist: The Artist between D’Annunzio and Joyce
    • Abstract: Is “total identification with a specific author” achievable?, wonders Pierre Menard in Borges’ Ficciones. After all, the attempt to recreate the Quixote by copying it, and through the experiences of a different historical self, does nothing but overturn or perhaps even abolish the autonomy of the creator, who finds himself to be rather incidentally Miguel de Cervantes (Borges 45–46). The vain attempt to totally identify or engage with the author demonstrates a contradiction and ultimately shows the elusive essence of the author, absent precisely where his or her firm presence is expected to be.The “death of the Author” utterly transforms the modern text by way of multiplicity and through the lack of a fixed end ...

  • Ariosto, the Great Metaphysician
    • Abstract: In the early summer of 1917, summoned to his native Greece as a translator for the royal Italian army, Andrea de Chirico left his elective homeland on a steamboat, like a modern Jason. He and his brother had no passport, and even if they were conceiving Italy’s most distinctive and influential contribution to modernism after Futurism, some military service was still the only failsafe way to officially become subjects of Vittorio Emanuele, whose grandfather’s equestrian monument still looms in Giorgio’s Turinese canvasses and in Andrea’s Chants de la mi-mort. Among the small crew of vanguardist flâneurs that were sharing, within the Renaissance ramparts of Ferrara, the same seminal aesthetic vision, the younger de ... Read More

  • A New Century of the Impossible: Giovanni Papini’s “Fantastico
           Interno”
    • Abstract: Giovanni Papini1 was a nonconformist and controversial Italian cultural figure. As well as being a prolific writer and essayist, he is also remembered for his associations with Filippo Tommaso Marinetti and the Italian Futurists. Less well known are his forays into fantastic literature that principally comprise three collections from the early twentieth century: Il tragico quotidiano (1906), Il Pilota cieco (1907), and Parole e sangue (1912). While these stories are discussed in studies dedicated to Papini’s cultural and literary contributions, they are rarely discussed in the wider context of Italian fantastic literature.2 However, Papini’s understated contribution to fantastic literature is worthy of more focused ...

  • “Che fronte di uomo di genio!”: Woman, Genius, and Modernity in
           Haydée’s Faustina Bon
    • Abstract: The aim of this essay is to draw critical attention to Faustina Bon, Romanzo Teatrale Fantastico (1914), a forgotten novel by Haydée, nom de plume of the Jewish writer Ida Finzi (1867–1946), one of the most prolific women writers working in Trieste at the beginning of the twentieth century, when Trieste was still part of the Austro-Hungarian empire. Although almost completely forgotten today, Haydée was during her life a well-known journalist and author of plays, novels and irredentist pamphlets that became very popular in the wake of the first World War. A convinced believer in the irredentist cause, after Trieste’s unification with Italy she became a fervent supporter of the fascist party and wrote regularly for ... Read More

  • Snatched from the World: The Phenomenology of Captivity in Italian Ransom
           Kidnapping
    • Abstract: When we think about kidnapping in Italy, the first abduction that comes to mind is that of former prime minister Aldo Moro, who was kidnapped and murdered in 1978 by the Marxist-Leninist terrorist organization the Red Brigades. Yet that same year, forty-three private citizens were kidnapped for ransom by criminal organizations identified by the media under the general name of anonima sequestri (anonymous kidnapping), whose roots were Sardinian banditry, the Sicilian mafia, and the Calabrian ’ndrangheta. Unlike terrorists, these criminal syndicates never publicly claimed responsibility for their kidnappings. In 1977, before Moro’s abduction, the number of ransom kidnappings reached its peak: seventy-five in a single ... Read More

  • Ghostly Embodiments of Migration: Jarmila Očkayová’s Aesthetics of
           Estrangement and Transnationalism in L’essenziale è invisibile agli
           occhi
    • Abstract: A strange sickness haunts the protagonist of Jarmila Očkayová’s L’essenziale è invisibile agli occhi (1997).1 The novel uses this sickness as its central symbolic imagery for encoding the estranging effects of migration and addressing the protagonist’s psychic trauma. In the novel, accounts of various physical symptoms interrupt the narrative and impose themselves as moments of inarticulate rupture. The protagonist, whose name is Agata Jakub, is an Italo-Slovakian journalist who finds herself unable to grasp the source of her malattia. Yet, her anxious questioning leads her on a journey to recover her multiple belongings. She begins to recall not only her stunted formation as a woman, but also years of repression ... Read More

  • The Ethical Dimension of the Decameron by Marilyn Migiel (review)
    • Abstract: Marilyn Migiel’s The Ethical Dimension of the Decameron is a new investigation of the varied relationships between the Decameron and its readers, between the Author and his characters, and between translators and the intentionality of the text. Adding to the work of numerous Boccaccio scholars and translators of the past century, Migiel carefully reconsiders key passages of some of the Decameron’s most famous stories (and other, lesser-studied ones) in order to present inherent problems in modern readers’ methods of interpretation. Although she examines how every individual reading of the text is colored by personal biases and assumptions, Migiel denies taking a prescriptive approach to the ethics of Decameron; ... Read More

  • The Other Renaissance: Italian Humanism between Hegel and Heidegger by
           Rocco Rubini (review)
    • Abstract: The Other Renaissance explores in detail the role of Renaissance Humanism in shaping the intellectual tradition of modern Italian philosophy.Rocco Rubini’s research arises from his interest in unpacking two coeval and parallel debates that occurred in the aftermath of World War II. The first one sees Sartre’s existential humanism pitted against Heidegger’s anti-humanism whose resolute rejection of Cartesian subjectivism had far-reaching consequences, leading to “the anti-humanist sentiment that shaped our post-modern consciousness” (3). Conspicuously absent from the existentialist discussion is Renaissance Humanism, to which it is reserved a baffling indifference. This omission, Rubini remarks, is not just ... Read More

  • Morte a Venezia. Thomas Mann / Luchino Visconti: un confronto ed. by
           Francesco Bono, Luigi Cimmino, Giorgio Pangaro (review)
    • Abstract: Frutto dello sforzo congiunto di studiosi italiani e stranieri provenienti da diverse aree disciplinari—germanisti e filosofi, storici del cinema e musicologi—Morte a Venezia. Thomas Mann / Luchino Visconti: un confronto è l’ultima perla di Corpo a corpo, collana di Rubettino diretta da Christian Uva dedicata ai classici del cinema e della letteratura.Scrivono nella presentazione i curatori del libro—Francesco Bono, Luigi Cimmino, e Giorgio Pangaro—che Morte a Venezia, film di Luchino Visconti del 1971 tratto dal romanzo Der Tod in Venedig pubblicato da un giovane Thomas Mann nel 1912, “ne riprende la lezione in maniera quasi fedelissima” (7). Ed è proprio in quel “quasi,” come essi spiegano, che si trova la ... Read More

  • La citazione è sintomo d’amore: cantautori italiani e memoria
           letteraria by Francesco Ciabattoni (review)
    • Abstract: Considered as exponents of what Theodor W. Adorno disparagingly labeled leichte Musik, Italian songwriters have had a difficult time being recognized as a phenomenon of serious scholarly analysis. Despite numerous collaborations with poets and literary authors, the cantautori were often seen, as Giaime Pintor put it in 1975, as “sacerdoti di una cultura inesistente che vive solo grazie a un’erudizione appiccicaticcia e all’ideologia della cialtronaggine,” or, as Giorgio Manacorda still states in the Nineties, as “turisti della letteratura.” Songwriters, on the other hand, succeeded in distancing themselves from poets and intellectuals, claiming their difference from what they saw as a hypocritical, treacherous and ...
