Abstract

[Autom. eng. transl.] The short essay by Silvia Stucchi proposes to analyze Petronius's reception over the last twenty years, taking as a model three works of a novelistic genre that attest to three different ways of relating to the "Satyricon": Luca Canali with "Satyricon- Se Petronio l "had written today" (1997) is in the wake of a fairly traditional rewriting, updated to contemporary times; Jesse Browner, with "The Uncertain Hour" (2007, translated into Italian as "L'ora incerta - Petronio's Last Supper", 2009), while not a Latinist or an antiquarian, revisits the suggestions of the Petronian work and the news on the life of its author up to offer us an imaginary autobiography. Finally, GM Villalta, poet and novelist, with "Satyricon 2.0" (2014), builds, following very freely the plot represented by the Latin model, an apologue on the condition of the young intellectual in the Italy of the early XXI century.
