La Comedia delle Ninfe fiorentine. Revisione dell'edizione e commento

Abstract : The aim of this thesis is to analyze and updating the manuscript tradition of the Comedia delle Ninfe Fiorentine, written by a young Giovanni Boccaccio in Florence, as he came back there from Naples. The current edition by Antonio Enzo Quaglio (1963) only provides, as was customary at the time, a brief and inaccurate description of the witnesses surveyed. For that reason, in this work manuscripts have been dated a divided into a prezzo and per passion copies. Where possible, a biographical profile of the copyists have been included. Moreover, each copy has its own detection form.The second part of the thesis consists of a historic-literary commentary: the Comedia delle Ninfe is has been interpreted on the basis of the biography of the author and of his literary production. The two draftings of the Comedia have been also dated according to the biography of Niccolò di Bartolo del Buono, to whom this opera was dedicated. Besides, the Comedia has been compared to the Caccia di Diana and the Amorosa Visione, on the basis of the use of the capitolo ternario. A chapter on the prosimetrum provides some hypoteses on the literary sources Boccaccio may have, or may not, referred to. At last, by analysing the bucolic literary works by Boccaccio, the Comedia can be considered the first example in this genre, regarding the use of the vernacular.
