Su un sonetto di Ercole Strozzi già attribuito a Baldassar Castiglione digital
The sonnet Euro gentil, che gli aurei crespi nodi has been ascribed to Baldassar Castiglione since the edition printed by Gabriel Giolito, Rime disperse, in 1545. Not long after Giovan Battista Giraldi Cinzio, in his Discorso intorno al comporre dei romanzi (1554), suggested Ercole Strozzi (1471-1508) to be the real author of the sonnet. In spite of that, Euro gentil has been included in Castiglione’s vulgata until modern days. The article investigates the tradition of the sonnet, which include six MSS witnesses; five of them attribute it to Strozzi. A new edition of Strozzi’s lyric poems is provided, with new readings from 16th century MSS. Two previously unknown Strozzi’s sonnets are published from MS. Piacenza, Bibl. Passerini- Landi, Pallastrelli 230. The double tradition of Euro gentil is reviewed and the text compared with the rest of Strozzi’s vernacular poetry, showing the most important common features.
Da Venezia a Urbino. Ideali e valori del giovane Bembo digital
In 1506 Pietro Bembo decided not to follow a political career in the Republic of Venice, and to devote himself to study. He did not succeed to settle in Rome, but, thanks to Elisabetta Gonzaga, he was received by the Duke of Urbino, where he lived until 1512. These years were crucial for the preparation of Prose della volgar lingua and his collection of Rime. The letters he wrote in this period are considered, and throw light upon the working out of his literary ideas, where Petrarch was a dominating model and which eventually brought him to turn away from the courtly life. For this reason later in his life he may have eliminated a good number of letters written in these years. Some dubious datations of his epistolary are discussed.
