TWENTY-TWO PREVIOUSLY UNPUBLISHED COMMEDIA DELL’ARTE DRAMAS BARTOLI, Adolfo.
Scenari inediti della Commedia dell’arte. Contributo alla storia del teatro popolare italiano.
Rare first edition, one of only 350 copies, of a foundational source for the study of Commedia dell’Arte. The exceptionally well-loved and widely-performed form of drama is the subject of the author’s pioneering study: he examines tropes, characters, plots, structures and lines of ‘scenarios’ (the plan around which actors would improvise) with punctual references to all the published repertoires, and, in the second part, gives the text of twenty-two previously unpublished scenarios, which he copies from the manuscript identified as Magliabechiano II, I, 80.
